When people move to another country, some of them decide to follow the customs of the new country. Others prefer to keep their own customs. Compare these two choices. Which one do you prefer? Support your answer with specific details.
People may choose to keep their old traditions from their native country or to accept new ones. Keeping the old customs will help one to overcome the cultural shock and the change of the environment. On the other side, accepting the new traditions will help one adapt and make new friends with residents. In this essay, I will give different reasons why people decide to follow the new country’s customs or keep their own customs.
If one is from a country with strong and old traditions, I think it will be rather difficult for him to adapt to the new customs and reject his own. That is why some people from the same country try to live together and create their own community where the old traditions are kept. They can not break the customs that their ancestors created. For example, some nations are restricted to certain kinds of food by their traditions. So, they do not go to the restaurants unless their traditional food is served there. According to their customs, some nations have to wear certain types of cloth because their religion tells them to do so.
On the other side, if one is from a country with traditions similar to those of the new country, it will be easy for him to adapt and follow the new place’s customs. He will not feel much difference. Probably, the most difficult part of his relocation will be to accustom to the new climate.
I think that people of the new country are friendlier when they see that foreigner follows their customs. I believe that the traditions of every country deserve respect, especially when one lives there. In summary, I think that every country has its own beauty and if one wants to find out more about it, he will love it.
