It was an OK article but I never saw a definition of culture shock. Don't know whether I've ever had it before or not.

Well, to me what is described in the article, is not culture shock, but to be expected differences between living in different places of similar cultures. I moved to the US from Switzerland, didn't speak a whole lot of English, though I had a good grip on the grammar from studying English in school. I had to make many of the adjustments talked about in the article, but I never thought of it as culture shock.

On the other hand, had I moved to a country where the majority of the population had a different religion, where women had no rights, etc., etc. - that would have been culture shock.
