Whenever a lecturer draws a diagram or puts a chart on the board during a lecture, you should always copy it into your notes. You can add extra information from the lecture to the diagram or chart as the lecturer speaks.
1 Look at the diagram that Professor Zalz put on the board during the second part of the lecture. This diagram represents the "wave” that shows the different stages of culture shock. Notice that the lecturer numbered the stages і, 2, and 3.
As you listen to this part of the lecture, take notes on your own paper. Then use your notes to fill in the diagram with the names of the different stages of culture shock (in the left column) and the different emotions for each stage (in the right column).
Emotions of culture shock
Stages of culture shock
Letdown (becoming disappointed because something is not as good as you expected)
Honeymoon (feeling wonderful, like people who take a “honeymoon” trip after they get married)
Resignation (becoming accustomed to a new situation, even if it is difficult)
Compare your diagram with a partner.
Practice giving an oral summary of the three stages of culture shock with your partner.
