Hi,

This is a complex question. Culture can be so many things. Generally, you might say culture is a set of transmitted values or mannerisms.

I am not an expert on Thai culture so I cannot presume to compare but from what I have read Thai culture can be classified a "collectivist" while English culture is "individualist". Keep in mind that there is no single English culture. Cultures between English-speaking countries like Canada, the US, the UK, Australia, NZ, etc.. can be very different.
