A young woman sits in front of a laptop, speaking directly to the camera. Hi, I’m Lily. I’m originally from America, but I’ve been living in Japan for the past year. And I wanted to make a video about understanding a different culture. I think the first step to understanding a different culture is to, well, learn about it. Read books, watch movies, talk to people who are from that culture. Really try to immerse yourself in it as much as possible. Another important thing to remember is that everyone is different. Just because someone is from a certain culture doesn’t mean they fit perfectly into all the stereotypes about that culture. So don’t make any assumptions, and always be respectful. Finally, I think the best way to really understand a different culture is to live in it. Experience it first-hand. This can be difficult, but it’s the best way to learn about all the little nuances that you can’t really get from reading about it or watching videos. So those are my tips for understanding a different culture. I hope they help. Thanks for watching!
