What is culture Why is it important to study it
Bad answer: Culture is what people do everyday. We study it so we know what it is.
Better Answer: Culture is what people do everyday, things like language or clothes. We study it so we can know why people do what they do.
Best Answer: Culture is what humans use to get by in their daily lives. It is the sum total of all our experiences, our material objects, and our interactions. We learn culture from all the individuals in our lives. It is very important to study culture because we as human beings rely on it. If we have different kinds of cultural elements then we will be different people. If we understand this we can understand people and be able to understand our similarities and differences to get along better.
