Culture Shock

This is a discussion lesson that focuses on cultural differences in terms of polite and impolite actions. While the materials were designed with Kazakhstan in mind, they are easily adapted to any nation or culture. This is far and away the most popular lesson plan on this site and I am proud of that fact. I love to get feedback positive or negative in the comments!


  • To develop fluency
  • To discuss culture and cultural differences. To encourage students to deconstruct their culture and learn about other cultures.

This discussion lesson on culture has been moved to my Teachers Pay Teachers Store. You can purchase it there and download it. Thanks!
