Five easy ways to be more interculturally sensitive:

Standard
  1. Keep in mind, that if you were born here, most probably, you would be one of them.
  2. Even though you dislike the culture in general, there is a lot you can learn from country’s outstanding people, its’ history, art, ways of doing business etc. depending on your interests.
  3. Instead of focusing on negative aspects of culture which irritate you, concentrate on a few elements that connect you with others (sports, art, music etc.).
  4. Hard to find, search for locals whom you like and respect, and hang around with them. Don’t surround yourself excessively by foreigners who constantly complain. 
  5. Make friendships with locals and have fun.
