  1.
Polite and Rude
You've probably already discovered that
learning a foreign language isn't just learning new words and grammar. In order to speak fluently ?? and to avoid some embarrassing situations ?? you must learn how to use the words and grammatical structures within the context of the culture. 译 文
NEXT
Text B (continued )

  2. Not only must you learn the vocabulary,
BACK
but you must learn which words to choose in which situations. English speakers use a lot of euphemisms??polite, less direct words for things or ideas that may cause embarrassment. Sometimes words with the same meanings produce different feelings in the listeners, so you must choose words carefully depending upon the situation. 译 文
NEXT
Text B (continued
  2)
BACK

  3. Every culture has specific rules for polite behavior and certain words for special situations. Different cultures also have customary ways to act and to look at and touch people. What are considered polite manners in one culture might be terribly rude in another. One of the difficulties of learning a foreign language is learning what is considered polite and rude in the culture of that language. The dictionary doesn't tell you this. 译 文

Text B (continued

  4. Do you remember your first impressions of North Americans (or people from other cultures as well)?

Perhaps you wondered why they stood so far away from you. 译 文
NEXT
BACK
Text B (continued
  4)

  5. Were you surprised at the way North Americans eat? Different cultures not only have different foods, but people also eat in different ways. In the United States and Canada, eating is a social occasion, and people like to talk while they eat. North Americans don't make noise or talk while they have food in their mouths. One person chews while a second person talks, and then the second person talks while the first person chews! 译文

Text B (continued

  6. Learning to behave as the people of the
target culture is almost like learning a new dance step. You may feel awkward at first. But once you pick up the rules, you can follow the tunes and enjoy the ease of communication. 译 文
