    It's hard to tell from an outline. The stuff there looks fairly standard- it all depends on how well they cover the contents. Saying you're going to define culture is one thing, defining it is another.

    In case the person who reported this as irrelevant to language thinks his/her objection has been ignored, I think it's worth spelling out that in this forum it is a point that can reasonably be raised - although as Tdol has just said, it can't reasonably be answered.

    The first two questions in Section VII are very poorly worded (grammatically).
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
