The third stage is characterized by gaining some understanding of the new culture. You become accustomed to the aggravation, frustrations and inconveniences. You have friends to talk to, go shopping and dining-out.

You start to adapt to your environment A new feeling of pleasure and sense of humor may be experienced. You may start to feel a certain psychological balance. You may not feel as lost and starts to have a feeling of direction. You are more familiar with the environment and want to belong. This initiates an evaluation of the old ways versus those of the new.
