Knowledge of any differences and similarities between your own and the Spanish culture is also important for understanding native Spanish speakers. Your personal experiences will influence your interpretation of what you see and your interpretation of what people might be interested in or value most. So you need to be aware that these experiences might not always be transferable into other cultural contexts. Knowing about cultural similarities and differences will aid your understanding.
