Exercise 46

Read the text.

Alexandra Adler continues her seminar on cross–cultural issues. Entertainment and hospitality vary a lot in different cultures.

· In country А, entertaining is important. There are long business lunches in restaurants, where deals are discussed. Professional and private lives are separate, but clients are never invited home.

· In country B, evenings are spent drinking and singing in bars with colleagues and clients.

· In country C, lunch can be important, but less than in country A. Important contacts may be invited to dinner at home. Corporate hospitality is a big industry, with clients invited to big sports events.

· In country D, restaurants are rare outside the capital. Some entertainment takes place when important clients are invited to people’s houses for dinner, or go sailing or to country houses for the weekend, etc.
