An Intercultural Experience I believe that everyone in their lifetime should have at least one intercultural experience. It broadens a person’s sense of the world. If you are only accustomed to one culture how will you know what else can exist in the world? I grew up in a little township that was referred to as “the bubble” by all that lived there. This meant that there was pretty much one culture and experiencing something new was a rarity. However, this did not stop me from trying to broaden my horizons. When I was a junior in high school I got the opportunity to go on a trip to France with my advanced French class. I had never been out of the country before so I was beyond excited. I didn’t know what to expect. Even though I had studied the language of France for five years I realized I knew very little about their culture. I figured I would just go with the flow and try to thoroughly enjoy experiencing a new culture. I experienced culture shock when I got into the taxi after landing in Paris.
