1. Travelling to all corners of the world gets easier and easier. We live in a global village, but how well do we know and understand each other? Here is a simple test. Imagine you have arranged a meeting at four o’clock. What time should you expect your foreign business colleagues to arrive? If they’re German, they’ll be on time. If they’re American, they’ll probably be 15 minutes early. If they’re British, they’ll be 15 minutes late.
2.When the European Community began to increase in size, several guidebooks appeared. They give advice on international etiquette. At first many people thought this was a joke, especially the British, who thought that the widespread understanding of their language meant a corresponding understanding of English customs. Very soon they had to change their ideas, as they realized that they had a lot to learn about how to behave with their foreign business friends.
For example: The British are happy to have a business lunch and discuss business matters with a drink during the meal; the Japanese prefer not to work while eating. Lunch is a time to relax and get to know one another, and they rarely drink at lunchtime. The Germans like to talk business before dinner; the French like to eat first and talk afterwards. They have to be well fed before they discuss anything. Taking off your jacket and rolling up yoursleeves is a sign of getting down to work in Britain and Holland. American executives sometimes signal their feelings of ease and importance in their offices by putting their feet on the desk while talking on the telephone. In Japan, people would be shocked. Showing the soles of your feet is the height of bad manners.
3.The Japanese have perhaps the strictest rules of social and business behaviour. Seniority is very important, and a younger man should never be sent to complete a business deal with an older Japanese man. The Japanese business card almost needs a rulebook of its own. You must exchange business cards immediately on meeting because it is essential to establish everyone’s status and position. The bow is a very important part of greeting someone. The Japanese don`t shake hands. Bowing the head is mark of respect and the first bow of the day should be lower than when you meet later.
4. The Americans sometimes find it difficult to accept the more formal Japanese manners. They prefer to be casual and more informal. The British are cool and reserved. The great topic of conversation between strangers in Britain is the weather – unemotional and impersonal. In America, the main topic between strangers is the search to find a geographical link. “Oh, you live in Ohio? I had an uncle who worked there.
IV. Ответьте на вопросы к тексту:
1. What nationality is the most punctual?
2. Why did the British think that everyone understood their customs?
3. Do the British discuss business matters during the meal?
4. What is the main topic between strangers in America (in Britain)?
