Culture diversity in the host country

Some people believe that visitors to other countries should follow local customs and behaviour. Others disagree and think that the host country should welcome cultural differences.

Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.



Opinions are divided on whether foreign tourists should behave in accordance with local culture or the native country should embrace other cultures. Although adapting local lifestyle could help people gain enormously, I think that cultural diversity should be prioritized.

On the one hand, many people claim that complying with local customs and behaviour may generate more significant benefits. To begin with, visitors can broaden their knowledge about the world. This is because of their precious opportunities to immerse themselves in exotic practices of native residents. Besides, it could help people avoid misunderstandings or inappropriate behaviors. For example, in Vietnam that people must not wear revealing clothes in places of worship because of disrespect, which is relatively familiar to Western visitors.

On the other hand, it is believed that multicultural environment brings a wide range of advantages to both host country and its residents. By embracing new cultures, the country could gain friendly and tolerant impression. As a result, it may be offered a prospect of increasing foreign tourists, thereby boosting the national economy. Meanwhile, cultural differences could lead to innovation, which benefits the local. Accordingly, exposure to modern thoughts may result in new customs being adopted and backward ones being abandoned.

In conclusion, both sides of the argument have its merit. However, it seems to me that it would be more advantageous if nonnative travelers follow their own cultures.

The student is merely repeating the same errors using different prompt topics. This is his 3rd essay posted here that does not show any signs of improvement as the same errors keep coming up, just with different discussion topics. As I have previously given him improvement advice and instructions (in his first ever post at this forum), based upon my teaching style, that helps all the students who listen to and learn from me, I can sense that he does not receive my criticism constructively nor does he wish to consider my advice for his improvement. Which is why I am surprised he would continue to participate in this forum considering he does not regard my advice important enough to use for his writing improvement.

Since he does not wish to learn from me, he may leave this forum with my best wishes. If he believes I should be reviewing his work based on his actual tutor's teaching style, he has another thing coming. I cannot review essays and give improvement advice based on the teaching style of someone else. He should have that tutor review his work and advice him on improvements instead. He cannot learn from 2 different teachers for the same test. He will only succeed in failing the test if he confuses himself too much due to conflicting writing lessons.
