Global Sports Management: CULTURE SHOCK ASSIGNMENT 2. Questions and Answers 4. Reflection Questions and Answers 1. What is the name of your country? Mexico. 2. Did you experience culture shock when you came to the U.S.? Not really, life in Mexico City is pretty similar to the life in the U.S. The only thing that differs between the two is the language. 3. What were those experiences like? It was difficult at first because I did not know a lot of English but once I started learning, I was happy with my new life. 4. Did sport help you feel comfortable in the U.S.? Yes, a lot, I feel like if I wouldn’t have played football, I would not have fit in this new society, or at least not for a while. 5. Did they have football in Mexico? Was it comparable to the football here? Yes, most people do not know, but football has been around for more than a hundred years in Mexico. I know, it is mind blowing to some Americans, but it is true. It is very different, one of the biggest differences is the height and weight between Americans and Mexicans, as well as the technique and other things like facilities. 6. Was becoming a member of a new team a hard task to do? Yes, and the reason why is because coming to America to play the most loved, televised, and respected sport as a foreigner. It was really hard for people to assimilate that people from other countries can also play football.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
