Coping with Culture Shock: 5 Tips to Adapt Quickly while Studying Abroad

Trust us when we say that culture shock while studying abroad is real. We’ve all been there: You´re walking along a picturesque street one quiet afternoon when the surreal realization hits you like a flash of vertigo – Whoa, I am actually living in another country.  Or maybe you’re standing in line at the grocery store and can’t get over how close the guy behind you is standing… a little personal space, please?  And of course we can’t forget the inevitable scenario of finding yourself in conversation with a girl who is literally speaking at the speed of light, and you realize with horror that you have no idea what she just said …aaand cue the nervous laughter.

Summertime in Madrid

The summers in Madrid are known to be some of the hottest in the country, especially in the months of July and August. Temperatures exceed 30°C (86°F) on a daily basis, so venturing down a sunny street at four in the afternoon is a risky endeavor best left for the cold-blooded.
