Abstract

Culture shock constitutes the conditions of being perplexed about new environment customs that someone suffered. In other words, culture shock comes about when an individual migrates to a cultural environment that has little of nothing in common with his/her origin. Accordingly, this current research aims to investigate the culture shock experienced by the volunteers of Peace Corps when they were living in Indonesia and figure out the proper adjustment of the volunteers in dealing with those culture shock they experienced. This research typically adopted a qualitative research design since the data were in the form of words. Furthermore, the data were derived from semi-structured interview and non-participant observation. In this research, there were two instruments that were used, namely: field notes and interview guide. The result of this research reflected that three research subjects’ culture shock were similar to the relevant theories proposed by Wanning (2008). Those were composed of: (1) socialization, (2) food, (3) weather, (4) religion, (5) habits, (6) language, and (7) education system. Hence, in accordance with the adjustment of three research subjects, the researcher concluded that three research subjects attempted to adjust the culture shock they experienced. For instance, when one of the volunteers felt bothered by people staring and pointing at her, she always managed to avoid crowded place. Another example is when they have to eat repetitive food made by the host family, they tried to accept it by keep eating the food until they got used to it.
