Surviving Riyadh

Fourth Stage of Culture Shock

Fourth Stage of Culture Shock


In the fourth stage, you realize that the new culture has good and bad things to offer. You begin to enjoy and participate in the culture of host country trying their food, attending social events, taking interest in their music, crafts, and being able to speak the language well enough to communicate with them comfortably.

This stage can be one of double integration or triple integration depending on the number of cultures that you have to process. This integration is accompanied by a more solid feeling of belonging. You start to define and establish your goals for living.
