Q: How do you say this in English (UK)? Please check and correct my English in this picture
A: The word "culture" is a broad term. It can cover religion, food, what people wear, language, music, what people believe is right or wrong, how people great visitors and a million other factors. However, cultures do have common factors and the following three aspects can be raised: that they are more than just about appearances, are related to the regional community and are changeable. Culture tends to be associated with the way people look. When people meet each other for the first time, they judge each other and decide what culture they belong to. Americans may look different, but can be culturally alike. It is true that outside appearance can be hints to a person's culture, but is far from being absolute. Also, culture is connected to the regional community. For instance, humans originated from Africa so the continent's culture is important to all cultures. Japanese culture is heavily influenced by rice agriculture.In these ways, regional characteristics contribute to a cultures "flavor" meaning culture becomes a way of classifying people to a specific regional community. In addition, no matter what culture a person is part of, one thing is clear: it will change. All cultures will change. The fact that there are many cultures today is the most clear evidence that confirms for this. Now that technology is widespread, the pace of change is remarkable.
