Wednesday 17 August 2011 - Third Culture Kid TCK

17 Août 2011 , Rédigé par Karine Publié dans #Cross-Cultural

Sometimes you learn new things through Facebook feeds... I was scrolling around people news when I saw that public conversation about TCK .... I had no idea what it meant but I realised that the people involved in the conversation were people born and bred in country which didn't match their parents' culture or passport, thus developping a third culture on their own.

I actually had that comment with my Spanish roomie : I tend naturally to go toward people who are strongly connected to France (i.e grew up in France but background is not Caucasian ...) or to the French language (i.e has French as a first language such as French Canadian, Morrocan, etc ... or has lived in France and can speak the language...) but is not 100% French. I just admitted the fact as an incounscious (positive?) discrimination... But I never knew it was an actual concept
