Culture is everything that describes a particular group of people. The group can be; a family, people from a different town, neighborhood, country, or city. It can also be people who share a similar ethnic background, life dynamics, or work culture. Culture is often used to describe the features exhibited through history, language, food, arts, geography, family values, and beliefs.

In the month of May and June, the students were introduced to different cultures throughout the world. Each lesson is administered in an exuberant and academic manner. A lesson that the students enjoyed was learning about what is the traditional meal in various countries. Such as paella in Spain and Beef Stroganoff in Russia. In today’s ever-changing world, people have begun to realize the importance of learning, understanding, and appreciating diverse cultures. Why is this necessary? It plays a significant role in developing communities that excel in problem-solving and enhancing varying conditions. Let’s discuss the benefits of understanding different cultures.

The importance of language in human communication cannot be overstated. It is, however, not the sole component that contributes to good communication. Understanding diverse cultures can help you communicate more effectively in a variety of ways. For example, figurative language, pace, and presentation can all be influenced by cultural factors. Culture has an impact on how people express themselves through gestures and body language. Meeting and connecting with others allows you to broaden your communication and gain a new view on the world.
