Unit10 You’re supposed to shake hands.

【2d】 Role-play the conversation.

Katie: How was the welcome party for foreign students last night?

John: Great! I made some new friends. But a funny thing happened.

Katie: What?

John: I met a Japanese boy called Sato, and as soon as I held out my hand, he bowed. Katie: That’s how people in Japan are expected to greet each other. It’s impolite if you don’t bow.

We often just walk around the town center, seeing as many of our friends as we can!

Marc LeBlanc Lausanne, Switzerland: In Switzerland, it’s very important to be on time. We’re the capital of clocks and watches, after all! If someone invites you to meet him or her at noon, then you’re expected to be there at noon. If you’re even 15 minutes late, your friend may get mad.
