Exercise 149

Read and translate the text.

Where we sit, or how close we stand to other people when we talk, can be very different from one culture to another. This is because people have different “comfort zones”.

American business people usually like to sit across from each other. They also have a lot of eye contact when speaking. Many Japanese, on the other hand, prefer to sit next to each other, but with less eye contact than Americans.

“Comfortable talking zone” for Latin Americans is about one and a half feet away from the other person. However, for many Northern Europeans, this is too close. They prefer about three feet between speakers.

If you stand too close or too far away from someone, you might give the wrong idea. For example, some people might stand back to make more space. They are only moving into their comfort zone. But the other person might think this is unfriendly.

What can you do? If you don’t know about someone’s customs, follow your own. But watch how the other person moves. It probably won’t be very long before you can get an idea about that person’s comfort zones.

 

NB1 foot is 0,3048 metre
