Topic: People should follow the customs and traditions when people start to live in a new country. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

It is argued that when people start a new life in a foreign nation, they should obey their own traditional customs. I totally agree with this opinion.

On the one hand, there will be some obvious issues if the local customs are not followed. First, new residents usually easily get into trouble because they do not know clearly about the traditional rituals of the host country. For example, if they want to start up a business, a wide understanding of local norms is a vital factor to winning and keeping local customers. Furthermore, in some cases, immigrants’ behaviors might be considered illegal actions in the host nation and will make the natives feel weird or get angry. In Singapore, for instance, residents will consider newcomers dirty and ill-mannered if they litter the street or spit gum in public places.

On the other hand, following traditional practices of the new country brings newcomers a number of valuable benefits. New arrivals who fast realize and learn local customs and traditions easily receive the respect of the natives and minimize the stereotypes. It not only contributes to effective communication but also creates opportunities to meet new people. Another benefit is that the abundance of experience which newcomers gain from enjoying every aspect of new traditional customs, enabling them to take part in community life. During festivals and national holidays, especially, they will feel like they ‘belong’ in their new country.

In summary, I believe that it is essential for new people to follow the traditions and habits of natives in the host nation so as to integrate purely into a new community.
