Under de senaste mĂ„naderna har jag mottagit fĂ¶rberedelsematreal ifrĂ„n EF, som ska fĂ¶rbereda mig infĂ¶r mitt Ă„r i USA. Jag kan bara inte lĂ„ta bli att dela av mig av lite av informationen…
When you meet someone for the first time, you may simply say ”Hello, nice to meet you”.
Hm, hĂ€r tar vi det frĂ„n grunden…
Americans are famous for being outspoken and using expressive gestures
in conversation. Gestures such as nodding your head, giving the
âthumbs upâ (showing your approval) or waving to say hello and
goodbye are used for emphasis.
Okej, nicka betyder alltsĂ„ ”ja”, eller?
You may find that Americans speak openly about many topics, however
personal questions about things such as age, weight or how much
money someone earns, are considered impolite.
Most Americans take a bath or a shower each day,
and also use deodorant.Â Your host family will most likely
expect you to follow the same standards.
Nu bĂ¶rjar jag seriĂ¶st undra vad de tror om oss hĂ€r i Sverige…
When you make a phone call you
should greet the person who answers the phone, tell them who you are
and who you would like to speak to.
De tror alltsĂ„ inte ens att vi har telefoner heller..?
At dinner: It is rude to keep your
elbows on the table, talk with your mouth full of food, or criticize the
food that has been served.
Haha, jag hĂ¶ll pĂ„ att skratta ihjĂ€l mig fĂ¶rsta gĂ„ngen jag lĂ€ste detta informativa, fullkomligt seriĂ¶sa fĂ¶rberedelseblad.
God bless America!
