The name “Montenegro” means “black mountains.” Montenegro’s natural beauty and an average of 240 days of sunshine make it a growing tourist destination.
Montenegrin society has been influenced by a number of factors, including religion(the majority practice either Serbian Orthodox or Islam) and politics (Montenegro was part of the former Yugoslavia and only seceded from Serbia in 2006).
You may find your student to be very direct in his/her communication. Montenegrins tend to be straightforward to begin with, and this may translate to being blunt in speech. There is a saying in Montenegro that clocks have only one hand. Punctuality is not viewed as strictly in Montenegrin culture as in the United States. You may want to emphasize with your student the importance of arriving on time in the U.S. to reinforce what he/she learned in orientations.
In Montenegro, road safety rules are strictly enforced, while most other law enforcement is fairly laissez-faire.
