  1. Languages other than English

    Have you considered making Culture Grams available in other languages (particularly Spanish?) There are some World Language teachers at my school who prefer their students to do research in the languages they're learning.

  2. Teacher resources

    It would be helpful if all teacher resources are placed on one page (i.e. things such as tools, teaching activities, and common core and other curriculum standards). Links in the Teaching Activities PDF would also be helpful.

  4. Any way a history class can search Jim Crow Laws by state? Please let me know if I'm missing it! Thanks!

    APUSH class will be researching Jim Crow Laws by state. I wish I could direct them to CultureGrams State Edition!

  6. Include a quick-reference comparison to the US dollar in "Money/Economy"

    1) I like how the Kids Edition includes a link to "Money and Economy" - could the World Edition's "Economy" link also say "MONEY"? Some of my students switch between the two editions to find all their info.
    2) While I know not all users are in the United States, would it be possible to include a quick-reference within the Money link that shows how that country's currency compares to one U.S. dollar? My language teachers like to ask students to find that more often than extensive economic information.

  7. Holidays and Celebrations around the World

    It would be nice to have a section on holidays and celebrations around the world, and maybe even sorted out by month. This way they would be easy to compare instead of going country by country

  8. More audio files

    I noticed you have audio files that play foreign terms for some countries. It would be nice if you could add these to all of the countries.

  9. We would love for there to be citations generated for everything, like the maps, or the Did You Know? on the landing page...

    The maps and some of the information do not generate citations, so the students cannot cite the maps or the fun info on the main page.

    Add a colorblind mode for people that are colorblind to make the website easier for them to use.

  11. Make a topic filter for countries

    A feature where you can filter topics when searching for countries (ex: Religion, Art, Economy, History, etc.) This would make it easier to find articles about countries and to find specific articles about certain topics about that country.

  13. Regional info

    Please add more information on all regions, since that is the primary way in which we teach world geography. We don’t have time to get down to the country level, except to use as examples.

  14. add Macao

    I love being able to research China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong, but am disappointing when I can't research Macao

  15. FIX THE AUDIO FILES

    I have noticed some of the audio files sometimes blank out and skip that part. I think that you should fix it so then I can listen more clearly!

  17. Add more interviews

    I’m requesting the addition of more interviews. Also, if it’s possible, students would like to be able to listen to these interviews or watch videos of them.

  18. Add French Guiana

    We would like a CultureGrams Kids and World profile for the territory of French Guiana. We’ve noticed that while most profiles are of countries, there are some territories as well (Montserrat, U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, etc.), so reports on French Guiana would make the product more complete.

  19. Chinese Divisions(provinces, special administrative regions, municipalities, and autonomous regions) Edition

    It would be great if you had a Chinese Provinces edition, similar to the U.S. States and Canadian Provinces editions you already offer especially since China is a large and diverse part of today's world.
