For your compare/contrast essay, you will need to read about how your culture is similar to and different from American culture. You can get this information from Geert Hofstede's website. You will see a tool that lets you compare two cultures. Select your culture and the U.S., and the website will automatically produce a comparison chart. Under the chart, you will see an article that discusses the similarities and differences. This is the article where you can get your references for your essay. For references in your body paragraph, please use direct quotations from the report on your country. Remember that to get information about American culture, you need to select the United States first in the comparison tool
For your introduction, you need to provide background information about Hoftstede and his research. You can find that information the section called "National Culture" on his website. Remember that you need to paraphrase background information (not a quotation).
You can see how to do all of this in the video below.
