10 French culture shock moments | American living in France

Let's talk about France culture shock! It's real! Oxford languages describes culture shock as “the feeling of disorientation experienced by someone when they are suddenly subjected to an unfamiliar culture, way of life, or set of attitudes.” Every country around the world has its own way of doing things and France is no exception. These cultural differences in France might make you fall in love with France, laugh, cry, throw your hands up in exasperation or leave you scratching your head. It’s all part of the process as you discover a new culture and adapt. Many might also apply to other areas in Europe, not just France. Let's get into the 10 biggest culture shocks I discovered after moving to France and living abroad for years now. Let me know if you've noticed any of them while traveling in France!

Culture shock: Going to the doctor in France vs. USA | French healthcare

WATCH PART 2 HERE:

Going to the doctor in France is a rite of passage we all go through when learning about French culture. You go from being a confused foreigner, having no clue about what to expect, to this evolved master of knowing how things are done in France and handling them like a boss. In this video that tackles a major area of French culture shock, I’m giving you some insight into the differences about going to a doctor in France versus the USA. That way, if you find yourself sick in France in need of medical attention, you know what to expect and will be prepared for the French healthcare system.

10 SURPRISES ABOUT LIFE IN FRANCE (Funny Things You Notice in France)

???? CHECK OUT MY NEW CHANNEL, BADASS CAREERS - Helping you find your purpose and do work you love: ????

CULTURE SHOCK! What is life really life in France? Life in France involves all the things you think it will...and some really random French culture shocks and little things you notice here and there that I wanted to share!

After spending 6 years living in Paris as a foreigner, you'd think nothing could surprise me anymore about the French culture. But I guess life in France as an expat means you are never fully 100% ignorant to these funny little moments. Almost every week, you are guaranteed to have new things you notice in France.

Even though my expat life in Paris is over for now, comparing New Zealand vs France is another way to remember all of these France culture shocks which were such an important part of my growth over there.

I love doing these videos because it helps shed some light on the normal, daily surprises you may encounter as an expat in France and gives small but valuable insights into the culture. If there's anything else you'd like to know about life in France, please don't hesitate to ask below!

⭐ I love living in France. I love being a foreigner living in France. I even love being an American living in France. But let's not let my American positivity overshadow the reality of the situationright? It's not always easy being a foreigner in France and it's not always easy being an American in France! A lot of it this is just due to the different and very normal culture shocks that can happen when you live abroad. But today's video for once focuses on the negative side of living abroad and the four things I think are the absolute hardest to deal with being an American in France.

Can't wait to hear what you guys think in the comments about the worst things about being a foreigner in France for you and what you would add or remove from my list! Bisous!
