The idea of 'culture' can be difficult to explain: it can mean different things in different contexts. You might have heard the following terms relating to culture – can you explain what each of them means?

  • Popular culture
  • High culture
  • Street culture
  • Culture clash
  • Culture shock

Culture is passed down through generations and includes patterns of behaviour and society, beliefs, ways of thinking and ways of dressing, art, rituals and even cooking styles.

  • Where would you say Junior Eurovision fits in to these definitions of culture?
  • What about Sounds Like Teen Spirit itself?
