The Defense Language and National Security Educational Office is pleased to announce the CultureReady Basics Tutorial, an educational tutorial which can help participants learn the basics of culture general knowledge.

The purpose of this tool will be to provide you with a short introduction to culture and tips and strategies for interacting effectively across cultures.
