Culture

What is Culture? It is hard to define it in a few words. Broadly speaking, "culture" refers to the life of a group of people (usually a people) - behaviours, beliefs, values, practices, symbols often accepted without thinking about them. This intricate net of elements is passed down by communication and imitation and is what distinguishes the members of a human group from another.

Language and culture are deeply connected. Language is determined by culture and culture is influenced by language. To learn a language in an accurate way involves the learning of the manifold cultural aspects of the people who speak that language.
