As above. (Written by my friend who is learning English, but I find myself at a loss as to whether this is correct or not!)

I tried juggling the words around and came up with "Experiencing different cultural values", but this also seems strange to me.

A cultural value is something that is understood, or appreciated...but experienced?

According to Dictionary.com

Value (noun) 1. relative worth, merit, or importance: the value of a college education; the value of a queen in chess.

"I want to experience different cultures and learn about different cultural values" seems to be more correct.

If anyone could tell me (and explain why) whether "to experience different [cultural] values" is correct English that would be great.

  • Your correct version is redundant. It is more concise to write: I want to learn (more) about different cultures and values by experience. – user140086 Oct 1 '15 at 17:23
