What is culture?

Print

Everybody has his or her own culture. Culture is the way human beings live for a long time in a certain area. This means the way people eat, what they eat, what they use for life, what kind of clothes they wear and what kind of religion they follow. Culture is made up of many things such as language, clothes, food, religion, music, tradition and celebration. In the culture, the language is the most important for me.

Language is the sign of human beings. If you do not speak any kind of language, you are not a full person. This makes us different from other animals. So your language describes who you are. Also we use language for communication. After every person is born, he or she try to speak their mother language to communicate with their mom. Then he or she speaks with family and friends. So language is very important for communication. Also we use language to solve any kind of our daily problem. For example, when we get some problem and we need to tell to someone who is going to help us but that guy doesn’t know your or my language, we cannot solve our problem. Language is the first important to solve our problem.

Finally, language is important for me because if you are not speaking any kind of language, you are not different from other animals because you are not a full person.

We use language for many things such as communication with people, to solve our problem, and language is the sign that makes people different from other animals. I think language is the most important and the other things are after language.
