Jaden MontgomeryCOM-263March 10, 2019Edward EylerCulture and Perception: MexicoCulture is the social behavior or beliefs and values that are passed down generation to generation in a specific social group. Culture can encompass anything from language to religion or music and arts. Different cultures cause diversity in the world, there wouldn’t be any Mexican food if it wasn’t for the Mexican culture. This paper is going to focus on the cultural aspect of Mexico, how the Mexican culture compares to U.S. culture and the impact of mass media on intercultural communication.Cultural Identity is a matter of “becoming as well as of “being”, it belongs to the future as much as to the past (Meyer, 1996). The cultural identity of any cultural comes from its roots and shows the core values and principles, but like anything that is old, it has to go through change. This change that happens makes the understanding of Mexican-Americans even more complex. The majority of the Mexican population speaksSpanish, but you will find differences depending on what city. There is also the difference in style of speaking that some Mexicans do, “Mexicans use a lot of diminutives to convey their meaning in a softer or more affectionate way” (Evason, 2018). The Mexican culture mainly turns to television or soap operas for their free time.
