          Even the gestures we use for “yes” and “no” are different around the world. In many countries, shaking one’s head means “no”, and nodding means “yes”. In Bulgaria, parts ofGreece, and Iran, however, the gestures have the opposite meaning. There are also differences as to how often we touch each other, how close we stand to someone we are talking to, and how we act when we meet or part. In some countries, for example,FranceandRussia, a visiting friend is greeted with a kiss on the cheek; in other countries people greet each other with a firm handshake, a loving hug, a bow or simply a nod of the head.

         甚至连我们用来表示肯定和否定的姿势在全球有所不同。在许多国家里,摇头代表 定,点头代表否定。然而在保加利亚、希腊及伊朗的部分地区这些姿势有着相反的含义。我们彼此接触的频率,与人交谈的距离,还有我们相见和分离的动作也有所不同。在一些国家,诸如法国和巴西,打招呼时亲吻来访者的脸颊;在其它的国家,人们用强有力的握手,绵绵爱意的拥抱,鞠躬或略微点头来打招呼。

         While there are many different interpretations of our body language, some gestures seem to be universal. Pressing one’s palms together and resting one’s head on the back of one’s hand while closing the eyes as if sleeping means “I am tired”. A good way of saying “I am full” is moving the hand in circle over the stomach after a meal. If a person pats his or her stomach before the meal, it usually means “I am hungry”.

      同一种肢体语言可以有不同的解释,而有些却似乎是通用的。并拢双手,头靠在手背上并闭上双眼,仿若入睡表明“我很累”。说“我饱了”的好办法是饭后在肚子前画圈。如果一个人在饭前拍他的肚子,他通常意味着“我饿了”。
