Culture is the way people identify themselves with their communities. It refers to the shared values, beliefs, views, and practices of a group of people which enable them to exist together. History, and the regions in which people live help to shape their culture, and the ‘rules’ or ways of a culture are generally passed on from one generation to the next through traditions.
Aspects of culture include
- country of origin

- religious beliefs and practices
- social and community responsibilities
- family relationships and responsibilities
- artistic style and expression
- dress code
- gender roles
