Looking at Tim’s first response to the process of integration I was inspired by his approach. He didn’t go half way, he jumped in. Tim said: “We were immersed in a non-English speaking environment and were in church, running club, friendships etc. in French” (Meier, 2012). They didn’t try to slowly creep into the culture or language but immersed themselves right away. By his own admission it wasn’t easy and he shares: “It took about 2 years to feel completely comfortable and at home but it has worked” (Meier, 2012). Full immersion quickly in such a culture is tough but it pays off in the long run of things. I think I agree fully with this approach because not only does it assist in you and your family understanding a new culture but it shows the culture and people around you that you truly care about them as people and aren't trying to bring your culture to them but are bringing yourself to their culture.
