Undeniably, do as the Romans do in Rome, which is a accumulated experience inherited from our ancestors, is still widely used in our daily life. This old saying vividly tells us that no matter where we are, we should do it according to the local customs. This proverb has had a profound impact on our communication.
As far as I know, people from other cultures have had such experience myself last year. My neighbor Xiao Wang and I went to the United States for a tour. One day, we lost our way.
It seems that we can't find the way back to the Hotel any more. Suddenly, an old lady came to us excitedly and wanted to be polite. Xiao Wang came to her and asked, excuse me How old are you? This polite opening line in Chinese culture makes the lady stare at him in surprise, because in western culture, age is taboo.
Seeing embarrassment, I asked, beautiful weather, of course, the lady said yes, and happily told us the way to the hotel. From the above example, we can learn a lesson, that is, whether we know the local customs and habits will play a crucial role in our relationship with others. More importantly, doing everything like the local people will help us to make more friends and avoid trouble (about studying abroad) how can I fund my university education.
