American hospitality begins at home——especially when it comes to the way of visiting friends. When someone plans to pay a visit to his American friend, he’d better send a notice to this American before he really starts to go. Only very close friends can call by without a notice before. This is especially true if the guests want to stay for a few days. Here’s a very good suggestion for house guests: Short stays are best. As one French writer put it, “The first day a mean is a guest; the second a burden; the third a pest.” Even relative don’t usually stay for several weeks at a time.

美国人的热情好客起源于家——尤其当涉及到拜访朋友时。当一个人计划要去拜访他的美国朋友时,在他实际开始去之前最好寄一个通知给这个美国朋友。仅有非常亲密的朋才能打电话通知。特别是客人想要呆几天。短住最好,这是对房客的非常好的建议。正如一位法国作家所言:“第一天意为着一个客人,第二天是个负担,第三天就令人讨厌了。”甚至亲戚通常一次也不呆几个星期。

While you’re staying with an American family, it will be worth your trouble to keep your living area neat, tidy and in good order. And the family will owe great thanks to you. They may even invite you back again!

当你呆在一个美国人家的时候,保持你所居住的区域的整洁、干净和有序是非常值得的。这个家庭将欠你一句谢谢。他们甚至可能还会邀请你来做客。

Most Americans believe themselves to be hospitable. In all parts ofAmerica, people welcome their guests with open arms. So don’t be surprised to find the welcome mat out for you. Just don’t forget go keep your feet clean.

大多数美国人认为自己都是热情好客的。美国的所有地方,人们都张开手臂欢迎他们的客人。所以当发现一个欢迎你的垫子时不要感到惊奇。也不要忘记保持脚的干净。
