BODY LANGUAGE AND CULTURAL DIFFERENCES

The body language people use often communicates more about their feelings than the words they are saying. We use body movements, hand gestures, facial expressions, and changes in our voice to communicate with each other. Although some body language is universal, many gestures are culturally specific and may mean different things in different countries. If you want to give someone the nod in Bulgaria, you have to nod your head to say no and shake it to say yes the exact opposite of what we do! In Belgium, pointing with your index finger or snapping your fingers at someone is very rude.In France, you shouldn’t rest your feet on tables or chairs. Speaking to someone with your hands in your pockets will only make matters worse. In the Middle East, you should never show the soles of your feet or shoes to others as it will be seen as a grave insult. When eating, only use your right hand because they use their left hands when going to the bathroom.

In Bangladesh, the thumbs-up’ is a rude sign. In Myanmar, people greet each other by clapping, and in India, whistling in public is considered rude. In Japan, you should not blow your nose in public, but you can burp at the end of a meal to show that you have enjoyed it. The ‘OK’ sign (thumb and index finger forming a circle) means ‘everything is good’ in the West, but in China it means nothing or zero. In Japan, it means money, and in the Middle East, it is a rude gesture.

Read the following passage adapted from Oxford Advanced Learners’ Dictionary 2004, and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 1 to 5.

The most usual way to entertain friends at home is to invite them for a meal, either in the evening or at lunchtime on a Sunday. In smaller communities, for example a country village, people also invite each other for a drink before a meal, for morning coffee or afternoon tea.

When guests are invited for a meal, they often sit and chat while they have a drink before the

meal, and coffee is usually served afterwards. Several friends are sometimes invited at once to make a small party. These parties are almost always informal. Formal occasions, when written invitations are sent out and people dress formally, rarely take place in people’s homes, although they did in the past.

Larger parties are arranged to celebrate a particular event. Children’s birthdays are often celebrated with a tea party for the childs friends. The meal will often be followed by party games. Parties are held to celebrate a person’s coming of age (formerly at 21 but now at 18), a couple’s silver wedding anniversary (after 25 years of marriage), a couple’s engagement and New Year’s Eve. In the USA a person’s 40th birthday is often marked with a special celebration. A house- warming party is sometimes held to invite friends to one’s new home.

In summer, if the weather is fine, people may hold a barbecue in the garden. A much grander, more formal occasion is a garden party, held in the afternoon, when tea is served.
