Culture is a historical practice of a particular group, society or community based on their day to day activity, which is passed on from generation to generation. Culture consists of, rules, beliefs, customs, acquaintance, norms, and values, as well as attitudes, the conduct, dressing code, and language. Also, culture formulates the acceptable and unacceptable ways of that particular group.

Taiwan Culture Description

In regards to my background as well as culture, I come from Taiwan the county share a lot in common with other Asian countries and mostly Chinese because of the historical context of the two counties. However, there are a lot of distinct values practices and customers that are distinct from other counties, which later developed to become the Taiwan cultural practices. The most common language in Mandarin Chinese is known as Guoyu. This is contributed by the fact that most people in the country are immigrants or trace their origin from other surrounding counties such as China and Japan. On the other hand, most of the population are farmers as a result of the fertile land and availability of water, while on the other hand part of the population are more industrial through business and other financial activities (Coombs, Lolagene & Te-Hsiung 60).

On the other hand, English is the second common language in the country, which is also the curriculum language, while some of the older adults can read and write Japanese due to the affiliation of the two counties. Another common thing from Taiwan culture is the diversity found in the country, which later developed to multifaceted culture. The different individuals mostly contribute this from a different place as well as backgrounds such as the Fijian from China, the Hakka, the Japanese and other immigrants from Spain and Netherlands, who have lived and interrelated in Taiwan with each having a major role to contribute to the Taiwanese culture. As a result one is able to find traces of the groups with regards to origin.

Also, the traditional Glove Puppetry which has over two hundred years of practice has over time developed into a crucial social practice in the country which acts as an education platform, preserve and maintaining traditional values, and also an enlightenment activity for the new generation with issues such as the society’s legends. The Glove Puppetry, on the other hand, promotes to communicate veiled voices of the citizen’s political ambitions. As a result, the Glove Puppetry has developed to become a symbolic entertainment form in the county and the region at large

Recommended Cultural Aspect to Adopt

Family Importance in Taiwan Culture

Among the many cultural practices and values that the Taiwan society has the family aspect of the Taiwan, culture is one that could be beneficial and also educative for the Americans to adopt. This is because in Taiwan family is the most valued factor in everyone’s life, where the respect alines from the great grandfathers of the person all the way to the unborn children. The family respect and knowledge are molded in every child’s life through educative forms with their elderly parent. Through the educative approach, the children are advice on how to respect, act as well as respond to their elders based on the different situation. Also, the educational platform acts as a teaching section where the children are educated about their lifelines regarding the clan they belong to, the prominent people of their lineage. Similarly, what the family understands as right and wrong and lastly the expectations of other members of the family and the community expect from them as children and also as adults.  According to families are normally headed by the male members (Brown & Melissa 78). The elders in the society command much respect and have the most authority in both the family and the community at large. Moreover, the older people within the family have the prevailing will over the younger and other society members.

How the Recommendation Is Beneficial For America and Americans

Of the family, aspect is adopted the Americans would benefit one following

  1. Having a Common Vision

According to the family aspect of the society would ask “Vision unites, gives focus, dominates all inner conversations and inspires greatness” also, as sentient beings, we thrive when we know what our core values are. A clear vision inspires and motivates us. A sense of purpose and connection brings meaning and helps guide decisions that will affect our children and our family’s future.

When it comes to family culture, we know what we don’t want, but we’re not clear on what we want or why. And if you are raising kids with a partner, you likely have different backgrounds and have certainly been through different experiences (Murray, Stephen & Keelung 87).

  1. Defining the Family System

The Americans would benefit based on understanding their origin, developing family respect based on the fact that family is not as respected as the Taiwan community does. Moreover, before perusing any activity, one is faced with the following question as a way to develop precise knowledge and idea generation. Whose role is it, what is expected of me? How do I approach the situation?

On the other hand, Uncertainty or dissatisfaction regarding our family roles creates disharmony and imbalance in the family system. It is easier to define how each family member can best contribute to the family’s shared vision when we pause and have meaningful conversations about what we want and why we want it. Most importantly, everyone feels heard and validated.

  1. Making Conscious Decisions

The most crucial advantage that adapting to family values could bring is the Conscious Decisions making aspect that it develops. For example, what do you do when your family faces a new challenge? A baby’s sleep problem, a rebellious teenager or a move to a new job? Also, knowing your family culture can help you navigate the endless amount of advice, tune out the noise, and follow your heart and intuition. By aligning your decisions and actions with your values, you’ll find more joy and ease in your daily life. And the much-needed inspiration for trying times. And in conclusion that It’s not hard to make decisions when you know what your values are.


Conclusively being a member of the Taiwan culture, one develops a sense of belonging which is also the objective of other cultural practices around the world. However, the family aspect based on the Taiwan communities develops the uniqueness, and even the self-affiliation approach improves because of the deep understanding of one’s generation, their past as well as the challenges and achievements that the family has been able to attain (Murray, Stephen and Keelung 100). On the other hand, through the approach, the community can foster an environment that is friendly and one that appreciated everyone’s deference regales of the diversities that each community showcases. And as a result, the country can develop strong social fabrics from its citizens that later increase the development, social stability as well as the political aspects of the country.
