Participating is super easy, additionally it gives you a guaranteed 500 points, plus, the top 3 comments, in our Moderators’ view, will get an extra 5000 points each.

Post your opinion as a comment to this topic.

You can read all the books and watch all the documentaries in the world but you will never truly know a culture unless you are a part of it

I Agree is to learn of another culture is to travel and immerse

The best way to learn of another culture is to travel and immerse yourself in the culture and language of the area you are visiting.

To learn about a culture involves getting to understand what is important to that culture. Get to learn about the people and their land before contacting the people in your area or joining in a function which the group has put on. Most groups are open to outsiders as long as they are respectful of their beliefs and are honestly trying to understand their cultures. It involves a lot of learning before hand but can be very rewarding if it's done respectfully.

The best way to get immersed is by visiting or living in that culture and learning its language. In my opinion, language and culture are inseparable. Without knowing the language of the culture one can learn about it, but knowledge without practice, won't result in complete immersion and understanding. Language and culture are always intertwined as one can't be understood without the other.

The best way to understand a different culture is to Travel. Reading up on a culture can help you before you go but just reading about it is not the same as living it.

The best way to understand different cultures is to live it. Travel and once you are there do as much as you can when you are there, visest many places and talk to many people, try new foods and new things. Be very open minded.
