Wow! You now know so much about Mexico! Your friend Jordan, however, knows nothing about it. In a few months, his family is goin
g on a tour of Spanish speaking-countries, including Spain and several Latin American countries. He has asked you to help him learn more about those places before his trip. His first trip is to Mexico. Write Jordan a letter in English comparing Mexican culture and American culture in a minimum of ten descriptive sentences.
Note: The United States is a vast country filled with diverse and beautiful cultures and people, and so is México! One person's cultural experience in the United States can vary greatly to another. Write about your cultural experience. Your culture can be different than your best friend's culture or neighbor's culture. You may share a Mexican-American culture. Write about it.
Think in terms of food, sports, transportation, weather, population, celebrations, and demographics. How is your culture similar to Mexican culture? How is it different? Use details from what you have learned to help Jordan prepare for the trip, and have fun!
Before you write, take notes on these questions to help guide your writing. Be sure to include an introductory sentence and a sign-off in your letter.
