Topic;
Some people believe that visitors to other countries should follow local customs and behaviour. Other disagrees and thinks that the host country should welcome cultural differences.

What do you think?
Customs and traditions allude towards the uniqueness of a country. Their predecessors endeavoured to develop and preserve their culture and undoubtedly they represent the country in the world. On this behalf people consider their culture as national heritage and want to keep on reviving it by pursuing their old traditions. However, in my opinion most ardent welcome of new culture would be prudent and beneficial.

Firstly, I believe by learning about new cultures we can become much more tolerant and can bring harmony to the society because of more social understanding and less social conflicts. When we learn and imitate foreign customs, it can actuate the visitors for friendship and moreover proved to be auxiliary to apprehend their hopes and worries and help them to get through their difficulties and survive in a new locality.

Secondly, it is true that nothing defines a culture more than its language and it is also true that limits of my languages are the limits of my world. If I learn the visitors, it will not only bridge the communication gap between us but it will also broaden my future career perspective. Fpr instance by accomplishing the skills of English language can open many ways to educate in best universities of the world.

Thirdly, if foreign traditions are beneficial and congenial then they can become the part of the lives of the local dwellers. Take the example drinking Chinese tea with meals, basically it is warm water helps in digestion, surely by following this conduct of the visitors will not mask the local customs.

However, the opponents consider that "do in Rome as Romans' do". When visitors come to a foreign land they should respect the local traditions and to indulge in the local community, they must attribute their selves to the local customs.

Concluding, I firmly believe that to promote humanity and understanding among the people learning about cultural difference in compulsory.
