A strange greeting

When you come to Tibet, be ready that the first local you see will show you their … tongue! No, they don't want to offend you. In fact, this is the way they greet and make sure that the person you meet is not an evil spirit. So, don't waste time and show your tongue in response to let everyone know that you're not an evil spirit either.

Eating loudly

You can chomp* loudly while eating in China. If guests eat quietly, they can offend the owner of the house or the chef in the restaurant. The Chinese think that eating quietly is eating without pleasure. So, if you want to show your respect for the culinary skills of the cook, start chewing the food or eating the soup as loudly as possible. The tradition is also popular in some other Asian countries like Japan and Korea.

*chomp — to chew food noisily

Sweet dreams!

In Japan, you must sleep at work. This kind of rest during the workday is called "inemuri" which means "sleep while being present". This tradition is a result of a long working day in this country. Sleeping on the job is not only normal but also honourable. The Japanese think that people who sleep well and long during "inemuri" are more hard-working than those who don't take a nap.

    Делаем вместе с сыном бесплатные задания по английскому в Skysmart, это оказалось полезно не только для него, но и для меня. Например, вспомнила, как использовать артикли, — эта тема для меня всегда была сложноватой. Хотелось бы побольше заданий на аудирование, пока у сына этот навык хромает.

    Я занимаюсь в Skysmart с 3‑го класса, и немного удивился, когда нашел раздел с бесплатными заданиями здесь. Они отличаются от тех, которые мы проходим на уроках, но тоже интерактивные. По-моему, на компьютере делать упражнения получается быстрее и интереснее, чем в тетрадке.

    Наткнулась на этот сайт, когда готовилась к ВПР по английскому. Пассивный залог — моя больная тема, но бесплатные задания помогли вспомнить правила, а потом еще статью почитала, и работу написала в итоге хорошо.
