|Introduction to the Necessary Living Habits and Etiquettes of American Immigrants
Introduction to the lifestyle and etiquette that American immigrants must know.
Having lived in the United States for a long time, I have gradually learned a little about the American people's living habits and treatments.
The general feeling is that there are great differences between Chinese and American cultures, which is reflected in the great differences in living habits.
Meet, introduce, talk Generally speaking, Americans are known for being informal and free.
To greet strangers is not necessarily to be friends with you; a pleasant conversation does not necessarily turn into a heart-to-heart conversation, only active contact, with a happy mood to deal with.
Shake hands only on formal occasions, smile at each other and say "Hi!
" when meeting in general.
" That is the etiquette of meeting.
In the United States, direct names are usually not used as "Mr", "Mrs", "Miss" or formal titles.
Titles of address are given only to judges, doctors, senior officials, professors and senior clergy.
Generally, no title is useD.Don't use the word "old" when addressing elders.
In conversation, we should pay attention to:
often with a smile, when meeting friends, take the initiative to greet each other, others greet you, but also to greet each other, show concern.
When you speak with sincerity and generosity, when others greet you, answer as concisely as possible.
Praise each other more.
Keep your eyes bright.
When the other person changes his hairstyle, look at the pictures of the other person and praise the good places as much as possible.
When the other person changes his hairstyle, you can use another angle to appreciate the bad things, such as cute.
Don't forget Excuseme, Please and Thank you.
Attention should be paid to your appearance:
Do not be sloppy, body or mouth odor, dandruff and so on are very unpleasant.
Americans are open-minded, generous and sociable.
They usually go to bed late and get up late, but they have a strong sense of time.
Americans often say "come to me anytime.
" Some invitations are quite sincere, but before visiting, they should call in advance to determine the time so as not to cause inconvenience to others because of their "anytime".
Appointments should be scheduled beforehand, usually not late.
If a formal invitation is received, if R is printed on the invitation.
If you want to go or not, you need to call.
Invitation cards for large events are usually printed with Regrets only, which is notified only when no participants are present.
Informal private invitations can be made by telephone or letter, clearly informing the time and place.
Upon receipt of the invitation, I would like to send a letter of thanks to you.
If I fail to attend the invitation, I should not hesitate to accept it.
If I fail to be invited, I would like to explain my reasons and apologize.
If you can't make an appointment temporarily, please call to let us know.
You must never end up with no illness and leave people vacant at will.
Banquet etiquette If invited to a family gathering, ask the host what gifts he needs.
Even if the host thanks him gently, he can still bring a bottle of wine or a bunch of flowers, or some small gifts with Chinese flavor.
Any dietary taboos can be notified firSt.Special cultural customs and dietary taboos can be understood and respecteD.Unless stated beforehand, it is advisable not to bring children to a general gathering.
If the nature of the gathering is Antu meat, the whole family can mostly participate.
Home banquets are more popular with Americans than restaurant banquets because the atmosphere at home is more cordial and friendly.
There are two kinds of family feasts.
The first is the family dining style.
The host is seated at a rectangular table.
The host serves food for the guest or puts the food on a plate and passes it on and fetches it in turn.
The second is the buffet style, where the food is placed on the other table of the dining room and the host and guest go to pick it up separately.
Clothing wearing Americans dress casually and wear all kinds of clothes in publiC.Most of the time, I like to wear T-shirts, jackets, jeans, sports shirts, travel shoes.
Men's trousers should not show their shirts, women's skirts should not show their petticoats.
Skirts should cover the socks, women's shorts can not match high-heeled shoes, otherwise they will be mistaken for girls.
Eyebrow painting and lipstick are also signs of being recruiteD.No one can wear vest or pyjamas in publiC.Americans'dress pursuit embodies personality, temperament, demeanor, and pays attention to comfort.
They take the lead in replacing famous brand clothes with simple and plain clothes in the West.
Travelling by road Generally speaking, the right is the most important way to go, while the ladies walk together.
The men should go to the left and the ladies should push the door in and out.
When hitchhiking, the owner drives with respect to the front seat and the right side of the back seat.
When driving a car, you must drive the door for the guests first, and then get on the bus and start it.
In public places, Americans have a special respect for women, and women take precedence everywhere.
In social occasions, men should be modest and considerate to women; when walking, men should walk outside the sidewalk; when seating, they should let women sit down; when entering the door, men should first open the door for women; when going up, down stairs or taking the elevator, they should let women go ahead; when eating, they should ask women to order first; when leaving, they should let women get up first; when strangers lose things, men should also pick up and return them; when they enter the elevator take the elevator, they should let women take their orders first; when they leave, they should let women get up and return them.
Hello, men must stand up.
