BODY LANGUAGE - Page Text Content



1: In Spain, as in any other country, there are things considered rude behaviour and polite behaviour.

2: -When you meet someone for the first time, you can kiss on the cheek (girl-girl, girl-boy, boy-girl) or shake hands (boy-boy). When you meet this person well you can kiss or hug in the cheek. In Spain, we kiss twice.

4: -When you talk to people, it’s common to talk close because we don’t consider it rude. On the contrary it’s an expression of trust.

6: -You shouldn’t make a lot of noise with your friends in public. Children mustn’t scream and run around, especially in restaurants.

8: - In Spain, it doesn’t matter if we cry in the street. If barsa wins, you go to the Canaletes (fountain), you shout, cry, dance, sing, etc. In other cultures people hide their emotions, so they don’t cry or laugh loudly in public.

10: -The three most important expressions in Spanish are, hello, thank you and how are you? , but we don’t use please or sorry as often as in Britain, for example.

12: -In Spain, teenagers can smoke in the street though it’s illegal to sell tobacco to people under 18. If the police see you, they won’t say anything but if they see you buying from the cigarette dispenser machine, they will close the bar where you are..

14: -In Spain, it’s polite to call a teacher by his/her first name. We don’t have to say Mr. Or Mrs. as in other countries do.

16: -It’s polite to cross you legs in your house, but not in a meeting or when you are with people.

18: -In Spain it’s rude to eat with your fingers except when you eat chicken, prawns, chips, etc.

20: -In Spain, people like to show affection by kissing or hugging. In other countries it is considered rude or shameless..
