Customs of China

The Chinese are a lot more relaxed about some of their customs than other Asian cultures. As a waiguoren (Westerner), you're not expected to necessarily understand various customs, so you'll be let off the hook to a large extent.

It doesn't hurt for the foreign barbarian to be a little civilized every now and then. Read on for advice on specific customs.

Language Exchange --- Don't know where I would be without them!
spiderwick, Warrington UK/minobu519, Japan, kazuaki, Japan, nadesiko, Japan

I've met some great people. I'm currently learning Japanese and I've met three people who are really helping me with my language skills! As a self-study student I'm often coming up against some difficulties with the language; difficulties my text book really doesn't explain. But the three people I have met are always kind enough to help me through it. I also like to return the favour to help with any English problems. But that's not all! We share our differences in culture, exchange book and music recommendations. Though we are all hard workers, often leaving our chats to the weekend, we are always happy to have a friendly natter when we can. Don't know where I would be without them!
