First of all, as an exchange student, I did not chose my modules this year, and because I was abroad, this module was an opportunity for me to learn more about the wide concept of culture and all those components. From the beginning I founded the subject really interesting, and the context in which I am studying allowed me to get more involved. Indeed, when we started the first lecture, we were asked to define what culture is for us, and from this moment I realised that it was really hard to define, because numerous factors (history, geography, religion, education, language…) contributes to culture and many elements are part of it, such as practices, beliefs, values, customs…(Hofstede, 2005). I finally found the most appropriate definition, the one that corresponds the more to culture for me, it is a definition of a famous British anthropologist, named Edward Burnett Tylor and he said that “culture or civilization, taken in its wide ethnographic sense, is that complex whole which includes knowledge, belief, art, moral, law, customs and any other capabilities or habits acquired by man as a member of a society”.
