    Questiona about "a point of reference"

    I was wondering if my use of the expression "point of reference" in the following sentence is appropritate/correct. If not, how else could I say it?


    Since my English background is heavily influenced by American English and culture, my point of reference with regards to comparing and contrasting cultural differences between Korea and English-speaking countries will be the U.S.
