Language And Culture
Language and culture are intertwined. A particular language usually points out to a specific group of people. When yo interact with another language, it means that you are also interacting with the culture that speaks the language. You cannot understand one's culture without accessing its language directly.

When you learn a new language, it not only involves learning its alphabet, the word arrangement and the rules of grammar, but also learning about the specific society's customs and behavior. When learning or teaching a language, it is important that the culture where the language belongs be referenced, because language is very much ingrained in the culture

Language
Language is a set of rules by which humans can create and understand novel sentences. (Chomsky)
Language is a set of shared symbols or signs that a cooperative groups of people has agreed to use to create meaning.

Language from a cultural perspective:

1. Language is not only a rule-governed system with its own internal rules and logic, but a system of tools for the constitution of social and culture.

2. Language is used both as a means of communication as well as a carrier of culture. Language without culture is unthinkable, so is human culture without language.

3. "A language is the roadmap of a culture. It tells you where is come from and where they are going" (Rita Mae Brown)
