Why The Culture Cafe?

I’m Lisa, a self confessed culture junkie. I’ve always been fascinated by other cultures. This passion led me to study anthropology as part of my degree at uni and to travel at any opportunity.

It was on my travels that I realised that we can’t truly learn a language without understanding its culture and we can’t fully understand a culture without knowing something about its language.

Now more than ever, in our increasingly global connected society, cultural understanding and empathy is essential if we want to build good relationships and help create a more positive world.
