IS THE STEREOTYPE OTHER NATIONALITIES HAVE ABOUT SPANIARDS GOOD FOR US?
Over the last year there has been much controversy as to whether it is good that other nationalities have stereotypes about us or not. Many argue that having stereotypes is by far the best option, while others claim that don’t have stereotypes has more pros than cons. In this essay, I will analyse the pros and cons in order to come to a conclusion.
Undoubtedly, having stereotypes can be a great way to attract more tourism and to summarize our lifestyle. It’s well known fact that having stereotypes offers you the possibility of attract more tourism, for instance it is absolutely known the Valencian paella and for that a lot of tourists come to Spain, just to try. There is also the cliché that having stereotypes is great because allows tourism know the best things of Spain in a summarized way, for example many studies have revealed that the majority of the stereotypes are true or have been it sometime.
However, when analysed in more detail, having stereotypes can also be a great source of problems. If we look closer, we will realize that having stereotypes isn’t actually all it is cracked up to be. For one thing, stereotypes many cause offence someone. We shouldn’t forget either that stereotypes could very easily lead to the ignorance of the reality of Spain.
Don’t have stereotypes offers you a far wider range of possibilities when it comes to visit a new country or to learn about the country’s lifestyle.
Take for instance, visit a new country without prejudice allows you know thing off the beaten track. Experience shows that this is the best way of travel. Another major advantage is that if you should learn more about this country, take the north of Spain, for instance. In this place there are many sightseeing places, however, it is less known than the south, all places in Spain would be met.
To sum up, even though having stereotypes about Spain has some advantages like attraction to the tourists or lifestyle summary, it can also cause offence and ignorance. Besides, the fact that don’t have stereotypes allows you to visit a new country without prejudice and know the real lifestyle offers a new point of view of Spain, for example the beautiful Picos de Europa National Park or the tasty Saint Froilán donuts, makes it quite clear that don’t have stereotypes about our country constitutes the best option by far.
