The second edition of Discovering American Culture teaches students how to talk about another culture and then introduces them to the American personality and aspects of the culture that many Americans share. In addition to an introduction to the study of culture, topical chapters on life in the United States include communication, the education system, the workplace, and family life. A chapter on sports and fitness has been added (replacing one on shopping).

Lessons in this book will help students identify dominant American values and their role in American society; comprehend different aspects of the patterns of living among Americans; and understand American culture in terms of values, behaviors, and beliefs. Each chapter contains activities for vocabulary development, improving listening, reading comprehension, and writing skills.
