For those of you learning English as your Second or a Foreign Language
consider these facts:
A language is a system of sounds to communicate meanings and ideas ...
These meanings and ideas we humans think about come from our culture ...
THEREFORE, WE CANNOT SEPARATE A LANGUAGE
FROM ITS CULTURE.

from the songs and stories of childhood.
