  • Greetings 世界各地的問候方式

    握手 Handshakes

    In the United States a firm handshake is very important. Along with eye contact and a smile, it helps create a good first impression.

    在美國,強有力地握手十分重要。連同眼神接觸以及微笑,強有力的握手能營造出良好的第一印象。

    親吻 Kissing

    Europeans often greet each other with kisses on the cheek. In Germany, one kiss is typical. People in Spain, Italy and several other countries kiss twice, once on each cheek. The French give more kisses, but sometimes even they don't know what number is appropriate.

    歐洲人通常會用親臉頰來打招呼。在德國,一般都親一次。西班牙、義大利會親兩次。法國人親吻的次數較多,但有時甚至連他們自己也不清楚究竟幾次才算恰當。

    鞠躬 Bowing

    Japanese people tend to greet others by bowing from the waist. In Thailand, people press their palms together and bow their heads. They communicate extra respect by holding their hands higher or lowering their heads more. Similarly, in India people hold their palms together, lower their heads and say, "Namaste." Younger people in the Philippines bow to their elders as a sign of respect. While doing this, they press their elders' hands to their foreheads.

    日本人會用彎腰鞠躬的方式向別人致意。泰國人會雙手合十並低頭,合十的手舉的更高或頭更低的話就代表更加尊敬。印度人也是雙手合十並低頭說聲:Namaste。菲律賓人會向長輩鞠躬表示敬意,他們會把長輩的手放在自己的額頭上。

    其他 And more

    The Maori people of New Zealand greet each other by rubbing their noses together. Sometimes their foreheads touch as well. This greeting is called hongi.

    紐西蘭的毛利人會彼此摩擦對方的鼻子來致意。有時也會碰額頭。這種問候稱為 hongi
