             Living in different culture is not easy at times because of many.
             First when visitors arrive at the host country with new culture they .

             capability to adjust to new culture, they start feeling frustrated and .

             period of time, I found myself to be alone. I had some problems with .
             English and communication with people. My background in English was .
             not weak and I thought I wouldn’t problem in America. But as soon as .
             I arrived at the airport I couldn’t understand even one word. Moreover I .
             thought I could find job in United States right away due to my background. .
             I went to the job agencies and gave them my resume. Even I couldn’t talk .
             with them and I start feeling frustrated and overwhelmed. Or when I went to .
             the shopping I failed to communicate with cashier. On the other hand .
             knowing English isn’t enough to talk to people and communicate with them. .
             I need to know and accustom American culture. Feeling comfortable and .
             relax with new culture needs long period of time. Visitors must socialize .
             with people in host country. They need to study and investigate their culture .
             and also they are supposed to be present in social activities.For example .
             when I was at school and tried to join to a group of people, they were .
             talking about something as they were laughing. After they stopped laughing, .
             I start laughing. But I am not supposed to laugh. I felt very ashamed. Or .
             when I encountered to people, they were talking about some national days .
             in United States like thanks giving and independent day but I did not know .
             about historical root and purposes of these days. I had nothing to say and I .
             nodded my head for agreement only. Another issue that I found myself .
             alone and depressed was equality.
