 Reverse culture shock isn’t talked about enough.  Many students aren’t prepared for the feelings of loss, bewilderment, and even anger.  If FES doesn’t know what she is experiencing, her family, friends, and host family are surprised that she’s not ‘happy to be home.’   Students are happy to be home, but are also miserable.   (We won’t even think about the pain if she broke the rules, and left a serious bf behind.)

Please read my culture shock series, part 1, part 2part 3 and part 4.   Google ‘reverse culture shock’ for experts’ advice.
