learn about American culture

A guide by Penelope (San Diego, CA)

Products sampled from this guide:
I love to travel and am very interested in other cultures. I love learning about other cultures and thought it would be interesting to approach American culture in the way that I approach others in order to better understand my own culture and how it fits into the global community. Of course, this is just the tip of the iceberg, but I think the resources I have listed provide an interesting variety of perspectives on American culture. I hope it will serve as a starting point for you to better understand American and other cultures and become both a better American and global citizen.
