Tips While You Live In New Zealandby TC Global Global Education
Making decisions to pursue your higher education involves a lot of preparatory steps right from choosing a country to university and course selections. It can not be stressed enough how important are these preliminary steps that pave way for a student's smoother experience studying abroad. But an equally important aspect that is often ignored or not covered in your preparations is about general life and customs in the country you are going.
So today we are going to talk about a few tips for students' sake to consider while they go to study in New Zealand. New Zealand is a beautifully peaceful country with a very self-motivated people. There is a good chance that you will land up living with a host family while you study in New Zealand and you will learn a lot here. People in this country believe in doing their chores on their own and hence when you are invited for a meal, it would be polite to offer help with dishwashing/drying. You must let your host know about the food restrictions you might have before the meal. While you study in New Zealand, it is not impossible to dine in the restaurants and so refrain from giving tips in cafeterias or other such places. It is not expected there. Please note that you might have to curb the habit of bargaining in the country because goods are sold at market prices in New Zealand. Talking about a peace-loving country, we could not miss the fact that car horns are not allowed after 10.30 pm and before 7.30 Am. So you can expect quite a quiet night for your studies. Right?
The Kiwis believe in a good personal space and hence while in public area during conversations, keep a distance so as not to interfere in that. You would know you have invaded their personal space when they back off a bit from you. New Zealand is quite an international community with a variety of cultures co-existing peacefully and hence it may come off as a culture shock for some but over time you will adapt with an open mind and learn a lifetime experience while studying in New Zealand.
