Lesson 10
 
Read the passage and answer this question: Do the Chinese and British have similar body language ?
 
Body Language 1
Although we may not realize it, when we talk with others we make ourselves understood not just by words. We send messages to the people around us also by our expressions and body movements. A smile and handshake show welcome. Waving one’s hand is to say “Goodbye”. Nodding the head means agreement, while shaking it means disagreement. These gestures ate accepted both by Chinese and English speakers as having the same meanings.
     But not all body language means the same thing in different countries. Take nodding the head for example. In some Asian countries it means not “Yes” but “No”.
     In many countries in the world, men kiss each other when they meet, for example in Russia, France, Arab countries and some of the South American countries. Men do not kiss each other in either China or English -speaking countries. In Britain, older people usaually shake hands when they meet someone for the first time; however,young people often do not shake hands. In France, it is the custom to shake hands with people in the office every morning. French people kiss each other hello and goodbye more often than British people.
     Generally, people from English-speaking countries do not touch each other very much. If you touch an English person, you should say “Sorry”. Scientists have done some research on “Touch” in different countries. They watched pairs of people who were sitting in college coffee-shops for at least an hour. They counted the number of times that the people touched each other: England-0; USA-2; France-10;Puerto Rico-180.
     In some Asian countries, you must not touch the head of another person. In Arab countries, you eat using the fingers of your right hand; the left hand is not used at all. In parts of Asia you must not sit with your feet pointing at another person. Foreigners should follow these customs when they are visiting these countries.
