What does the word culture mean to you? The culture is an umbrella that houses such broad concepts as a way of life, customs, knowledge, social group, time … It seems to be a drawer in which gets a little of everything. But, if we simplify all these concepts, we can say that the term culture refers to everything that surrounds a society and determines its way of being. It is enough to open a history book, travel to another country, or listen to music, to realize the cultural differences.
