[00:03.20]Manners
[00:06.01]Part Two
[00:08.42]Listening-Centered Activities
[00:12.56]Listening 1
[00:16.24]Exercise 1
[00:19.91]Directions:
[00:23.22]You are going to hear a talk on American dining etiquette1.
[00:28.44]Before listening, work in pairs to decide whether the following behavior
[00:35.28]is appropriate or not in China.
[00:39.64]Put a tick in the "China" column if you consider it appropriate.
[00:45.97]Dining Etiquette
[00:49.46]If you're invited to an American friend's home for dinner,
[00:55.19]keep in mind these general rules for polite behavior.
[01:00.77]First of all,
[01:04.62]arrive approximately on time (but not early). Americans expect promptness.
[01:13.55]Being a few minutes late
[01:17.72]might give the cook more time to get dressed or finish preparing the dinner,
[01:24.17]so it's OK to be 10 or 15 minutes late but not 45 minutes late.
[01:31.37]Dinner might be over-cooked and ruined by then.
[01:36.52]When you're invited to someone's home for a meal,
[01:41.30]it's polite to bring a small gift. Flowers or candies are always appropriate.
[01:49.01]If you have an attractive item made in your native country,
[01:54.41]your host and/or hostess would certainly enjoy receiving that as a gift.
[02:01.25]If you are served some food that you don't like or can't eat,
[02:06.90]don't make a fuss2 about it.
[02:10.72]If your host doesn't say anything about what you aren't eating,
[02:15.79]then you shouldn't,either.
[02:19.68]Simply eat what you can and hope that no one notices what you left.
[02:26.12]If you are questioned, you may have to admit that you don't eat meat(or whatever),
[02:33.72]but you can also say that you've enjoyed the other foods
[02:38.94]and have had "more than enough" to eat.
[02:43.26]Don't make the cook feel obliged to prepare something else for you.
[02:49.27]Be sure to compliment3 the cook on the food that you enjoyed.
[02:54.64]Don't leave immediately after dinner, but don't overstay your welcome, either.
[03:01.01]When your friends seem to be getting tired and running out of conversation,
[03:07.09]take their behavior as a cue4 to leave.
[03:11.48]The next day, call or write a thank-you note to say how much you enjoyed the evening
[03:19.76]Exercise 2
[03:23.26]Directions:
[03:26.96]Now listen to the tape and put a tick in the "America" column
[03:33.66]if the behavior is considered acceptable5 in America.
[03:39.17]Then compare your answers in pairs.
[03:43.56]Exercise 3
[03:47.16]Directions:
[03:50.69]Listen again and then discuss the following questions in small groups.
[03:57.60]Listening 2
[04:01.20]Exercise 1
[04:04.91]Directions:
[04:08.58]Listen to the tape and decide whether the statement you hear is true or false.
[04:17.08]Write "T" for true or "F" for false.
[04:23.45]Language Etiquette
[04:26.90]Americans are usually tolerant6 of non-native speakers
[04:33.96]who have some trouble understanding English.
[04:39.11]But they become annoyed when a person pretends to understand but doesn't really.
[04:47.60]This creates problems because he or she has misunderstood what was said.
[04:55.74]No one wants soap when he asked for soup.
[05:02.11]So if you don't understand what is said to you,
[05:08.27]admit it and politely ask the person to repeat or explain.
[05:15.97]All you have to say is ,"Excuse me,
[05:21.91]would you mind repeating what you said? I don't understand."
[05:28.82]Second,it is quite rude to converse8 with a companion in your native language
[05:37.79]and leave your American friends standing7 there feeling stupid
[05:45.10]because they can't understand the conversation.
[05:51.18]The Americans may also feel that you are talking about them
[05:58.02]or saying something you don't want them to hear.
[06:03.60]If you have to swith to your native language
[06:08.93]to explain something to a non-English-speaking companion,
[06:15.16]then at least translate for your American friends so they don't feel left out.
[06:22.90]Exercise 2
[06:26.50]Directions:
[06:30.02]Listen to the tape again. For Blanks 1-12

[06:37.12]fill in the exact words you hear on the tape.
[06:41.90]For Blanks 13 and 14, fill in the missing information
