The Oral Presentation Assignment is the culminating task on culture. This is a speaking assessment, and everything you have learned about culture up to this point is what you will draw on for your presentation.

How do you define success? 
How important is education in your family? 
Did you ever live with your grandparents or extended family?
How important is religion in your family? Why?
