Conversing With The Chinese
It is foreign territory. It is something that you are not used to being in. There are a lot of different things in that country and in yours. Unless, of course, that country you are visiting is the United States and your home country is one that is a lot like the US. But then again, there are a lot of other countries that do not have the same way of life as the one in yours. With that, you should make sure that you do your homework first before you travel. It will help you not be embarrassed once you are there.
If the country that you are visiting is China, then you have to make sure that you actually do your homework. There are a lot of different things in China that you would not be able to find in your country. In fact, this suggestion is not just for you but for all people in the world. See, the Chinese are really proud of their culture and it is very unique. With that, do not expect some ways of life to be really the same as yours. There will be differences. Be aware of that.
One of the things that you have to understand is that the Chinese really are not into negative things. With that, if you are talking with a Chinese and then you talk about a lot of negative things, then you may not be going with the good side of that person. See, it is like you are being impolite to that person. Now, if you have been asked or invited and you are really not going, you may not want to say “no” immediately. Instead, you can go and tell them that you will still think about it or you can perhaps go. Just do not give a negative answer.
If you have become friends with a Chinese, it is highly likely that you will be invited to their house for a gathering of sorts. When you are there, the conversation may steer to different directions just like in any other conversation. Of course, there are times when the question is something that you do not want to answer. What you can do instead is you can answer them in a way that goes around the question so much so that it does not answer the question. This is a way of showing that you are polite.
