地道口語:和美國人吃飯必備的嶽酯^語

  Ⅰ Introduction

  It is impolite to begin a meal until everyone is seated. It is also considered impolite to chew food with an open mouth, or to talk while chewing anything。

  在他人落座之前就开始就餐是很不礼貌的。张大嘴巴咀嚼食物,或者边咀嚼边说话,也被认为是不礼貌的。

  Americans often order the food they like to eat, separately from the group. If a person has had enough or is full,it is considered impolite to insist on that person having more to eat or drink。

  美国人聚在一块时,经常是各自点他们喜欢吃的食物。如果有人吃完了或吃饱了,强烈要求她/他再多吃一点或者再多喝一点被认为是没有礼貌的。
