Chulture Shock and Crisis

Post by star71u »

Last friday, we had a game called 'Barnga'. It had the 5 tricks each of them. Honestly, playing cards didn't familiar to me. Jason started explaining how to play this game. I tried to understand many rules not to fail the game because of my stupidity. Whew~ It wasn't easy to catch them expectedly. First round, I had very high tension to watch the development of the game. But it was a little bit enjoyable. It wasn't important that competing for victory in itself. Also, my partner Yunseo teacher was very smart. I relyed on her. But second round, we changed the opposing team. Something was wrong!! We insisted on our rules right. Regulated rules were totally different each other. A tense atmosphere could be felt in the class. Frankly speaking, I didn't realised what happened even then. Later, I could know what was going on. Jason said we experienced 'Culture Shock'. He deceived us again!!! EVenthough I really hated him, but I became aware of 'chulture shock'. I learned a lesson; Prepare to accept different (or various) cultures. That's why he desinged the funny game.

I also didn't understand the rule like you at first time. But It's not a big deal. just we are unfamiliar with that.

It shows how we react when we absorb other culture. It was pretty shocked game but enjoyable moment we can share how we felt during game, getting advice from activity. I thought I was opened mind, but I realized I need to be more generous.
