background image SH101 Spanish Language and Culture I Class Notes Week 1 Culture is defined as the shared sets of values, attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors.   
Culture also refers to historical patterns, values, societal arrangements, manners, 
ideas, and ways of living that people have used to order their society. Culture is 
what we are taught from childhood to adulthood, passed down from generation to 
generation.  Problems or concerns addressed differently in every culture around the 
world are religious beliefs, political power, right lawful codes of conduct, traditional 
family structure, economics, labor, rights of passage, rituals, ceremonies, 
expression, diets, beauty, love, modesty, personal space/privacy, and the roles of 
both genders in society.  Culture patterns have changed over time with the core 
values remaining the same.   The cultures experienced when leaving mainstream United States 
culture are distinctly different.   Cultural assumptions have a huge effect on how people abroad react to 
you and vice versa.  Since the ways people think and act in different countries may differ significantly 
from your home culture, the more you know about what culture is and how it works, the better you will 
be able to adapt to new cultures you experience.
Critical incidents are events that bring up issues and lead the members to ponder 
"What happened?" and "Why?" Everyone who travels to another country are 
unavoidably looked at with circumstances regardless of whether they are unaware 
of it at the time or can't make sense of what was happening.  They are mistaken 
assumptions, occasions that have distinctive cultural states of mind that may be 
translated in different ways.  By going abroad, it can be easy to offend a person of a
different culture
  unintentionally  by not being accustomed to their cultural views.
