10. Conclusion During this course I learned many things, things that had a different meaning for me before actually studying them. My representation of anthropology was boring, but now that I have learned many concepts, theories, etc. I can have a better understanding about the development of us throughout the society. Many of the information I acquired can be put in practice, for example, participant observation, it was useful when I did it con class, i saw everyone's actions when I didn't even care about them, I realized many things of my classroom. I learned all these by studying and getting deeper in the main course, applying these techniques in real life situations and investigations, watching other people's behavior, analyzing them, classifying them and relating them with all what I was learning in class every day.
