Culture is the norms and values of a group of people 

Norms are what is expected in a certain culture e.g. eating with a knife and fork 

Values are what a culture bases their norms on e.g. eating with a knife and fork because we value manners

Cultural diversity is the variety found in different cultures.

A subculture is a culture within a culture 

Global culture is worldwide brands e.g. Starbucks 

High culture is culture associated with the upper classes e.g. polo

Popular culture is culture not defined by class

Nature is characteristics based on genes and innate drives

Nurture is learnt characteristics

Oxsana was abandoned by her parents and raised by dogs

They are examples of what happens when nurture is removed
