Today we had a privilege and a great opportunity to share with La Ventana Spanish students a part of our culture because learning a language is not only learning the alphabet, the meaning and the grammar rules  but it is also learning the behavior of the society and its cultural customs.  
 Language teaching should always contain some explicit reference to the culture, the whole from which the particular language is extracted. Language always carries meanings and references beyond itself: The meanings of a particular language represent the culture of a particular social group. To interact with a language means to do so with the culture which is its reference point. We could not understand a culture without having direct access to its language because of their intimate connection. 
‘A language is not just words, it’s  a culture, a tradition, a unification of a community,a hole history, it’s all embodied in a language” Noam Chomsky.
