Cultural Shocks

Definitely moving to a foreign country will give you cultural shocks from time to time. Cultural change is one of the biggest challenges while working abroad. Accepting change is not easy but could be made easier with little research and preparation.  Before moving to any country it is better to have some information about the culture of that country. There might be some dos and don'ts that you might be following in your home country which might be completely different in the country you are migrating. So, some amount of research on culture factor is essential before moving.

Language factor

If you moving to an English speaking nation, than things are easier for you, but it would be a struggle again if you are moving to a non-English speaking nation. These days Germany, France, Ireland etc. are coming up as the preferred immigration destination for Indians as these countries are struggling with skills gap and ageing population so they are welcoming immigrants with immigration friendly policies and it is being observed that now instead of moving to US and UK, people prefer to migrate to these new immigration destinations. But the problem with these new destinations is that they are non-English speaking countries, and it is not easy to learn a foreign language in a day or two. Even though English is the Universal language and it is acceptable everywhere in the business but it will be convenient that the day you plan to move to any particular country, you should work on learning the local language which is required to survive in a foreign nation in a long run.
