“The American Dream is difficult for the European upper classes to interpret adequately. It is not a dream of motor cars and high wages merely, but a dream of social order in which each man and woman shall be recognized by others for what they are, regardless of the fortuitous circumstances of birth or position,” (JamesTruslow Adams).

SUMMARY

Times Square, New York

The USA has been thought of as land of opportunities, as it is not important what your background is when you go to the USA. Everyone can be successful! This is allowed by the social, economical and political system. Of course things  have changed a bit in the 21st century. It got harder to get a higher status than it was in the past because of the economical crisis in the USA. Nonetheless, this state still offers various circumstances and chances to accomplish the American dream: there are less regionalism and kinship than in other countries and people are only judged by their competence.

In the following text you will find information that you can use if you want to adapt to the American culture.  It won’t be difficult for you, since most of the culture and products are already globalized. Mc Donald’s, a well-known and popular fast food company in the world, is originated in this country. Coca-cola, Pepsi, Apple, Nike, Levis, and hundreds of many global brands are from the USA. Not only brands but many kinds of cultures co-exist in America, because this country was made upon people with different cultural backgrounds. That’s why USA is full of diversity and creativity.
