Устав от постоянного напряжения, заучивания новых английских слов и фраз, порой так хочется чего-нибудь легкого и ненавязчивого. Следующий текст – как раз то, что нужно. Читается легко и непринужденно, а понимается с полуслова.
“There is no way we cannot not communicate,” they say. Every word you speak, every look you give anyone, and even the way you sit or stand is all a language of its own.
The gestures you make oк the way you move say a lot about your inner thoughts and the way you feel even if you don’t realize it. If you say “yes” and shake your head, no one will believe you – and they will consider your behavior rather odd! If you try to hide your feelings, you will soon notice: your body language will never lie. It is therefore worth observing the way you and whoever else you are with behave.
When you are with close friends, you usually understand each other without saying much because you are on the same wavelength. Your bodies also speak the same language when you meet, when you part, when you party, when you fight. Other groups of friends have their own body language or have invented their own gestures. Many of what you understand as everyday gestures may have a different meaning, or be interpreted completely differently, in foreign countries. A sign or signal that you would interpret as totally harmless may be understood as an insult under different conditions in a different part of the world.

In every conversation you have with anyone it is especially important that an appropriate distance is maintained between you and the person you are talking to so that the situation feels normal. The more you like someone, the closer you will be prepared to let that person approach you. If you are an extrovert, you are more likely to permit body contact. In Europe, for example, we tend to keep people we do not know so well at arm’s length.
