I was absent last Monday. I missed the experienced to be in the class. Here is what I have from my own readings. I hope I made a good comprehension with this.
Culture is composed of two parts: material and non material. Material culture includes those that can be seen and touched, such as clothing, houses, tools and food. Non – material culture consists of attitude, language, religion, beliefs, education, government and the arts.
I have learned that sometimes we are not aware that a certain culture is existed like beliefs and assumptions. This comprises our value system, body language, and social distance. There is also culture that is readily apparent to anyone like literature, language and how people conduct themselves at public ceremonies.
I have realized that in cultural intervention; language is important cultural carrier in transmission of once thought. As an English teacher, we need to have knowledge about the cultural background of our students. Later, we understand why it is difficult for them to produce a certain language like yours. Finally, we can help them in their language learning difficulties.
