This iReport is part of an assignment:
Life in China
Avoiding cultural taboos
Today I will introduce about Chinese taboos.
First of all, if you give someone who is Chinese presents, you must not give a watch.
It means “I want to give someone the funeral that he deserves.”
Secondly, I will introduce the manner of party
1)Do not drink at your own pace.
In China, you have to drink with making eye contact. The best way is you drink to everybody from your right side person. It means everybody can drink same quantity.
2)Do not get drink on alcohol.
Chinese make people drink too much however, you must be normal attitude so you must not express getting drink attitude. If you get drink, you will never receive an invitation.
If you can be normal attitude, you can be respected by everybody.
3)Do not talk about politics.
In the past, there was a notice which is written “Do not talk politics!”
The rule is talking trivial things in a loud voice.
Please remember the three points, if you have an opportunity to go to China.
