For family reason, I visited New Zealand on many occasions and I savored a distinctive cultural atmosphere
In the winter vacation of 2005, I attended a one-month English Language training class in New Zealand. At the beginning, all teachers and peer students were so kind to me and offered me help in various aspects. Gradually I got used to the class and got greatly improved. However, I found people around me were not as obliging as before. When I turned to them for help, they always said "You can handle it."I was quite frustrated for this but later I learned that this was one of the cultural differences. In China, as long as a friend asks for help, we offer our hands immediately no matter it is important or trivial. However, in western countries, as long as I am on track, they will leave me alone and I have to struggle with my own efforts. In my opinion, this kind of "moderate help"does contribute to personal development and prevents from over-reliance.

For all the cultural differences between countries, I exert myself to understand them and benefit from them. Only in this way can we broaden our horizon and view things in a more sensible perspective.
