Teaching Culture to Your Students

Culture is both an important and complex idea that students must learn.  I needed my explanation of culture to be simple enough so that my sixth grade EFL students could easily grasp the concept. I chose to focus on the three concepts living, thinking, and behaving. Culture is how people live, think, and act based on where they are from.

I know that the definition is quite simple, but I believe that the concept of culture will evolve as my students move up in grade level. Over the next few weeks I will be making short videos around Seoul that explore culture. I am starting with how people live because that covers the basics of life (food, water, sleep, and shelter.) I am really excited to see how this experiment goes!
