Because I would like to be able to take communication with foreign people in English,
I wanted to learn the rules and tips of the way of speaking necessary for that, so I read this book.


As a comment, there was a place where the communication between Japanese people was also familiar, and it was fun to have new discoveries that there are completely different things.


Nonetheless, I think that it is okay if I read this book, but I am practicing it.
So I am thinking that I would like to jump into a community where there is a hobby, a job and a foreigner, and I want to talk with you.


1. Techniques to introduce yourself in English
· Look at the other's eyes, shake hands and say the name of the opponent
· Know when a mister will be disrespectful
When confirming to the other party whether or not to call
How should I address you?
Say that
· What do you do? (There is meaning of your work?)
· Where are you from? (Where are you from? Is NG)
→ Have you lived there for a long time?
· Avoid talks about religion and politics
· Talk with awareness of ageism
· Do not deprive yourself (even if allowed in Japan)
· Shake hands gently

2. Technology to bring out stories in English
· Do you have any recommendations? (Do you have any recommendations?)
· Learn cultural differences of gestures
→ In Japan it casually caresses the head of a child, but in Islamic countries it violates manner. Same for Thailand
→ In Japan, when you say No. you shake hands to the left and right in front of the face, but in the English-speaking world meaning of gestures of smell
· Hit back
→ Try using not only Yes but Is that so?

3. Technology to chat in English

4. Expanding the story in English

Tell me some about it!

5. Technology that leaves good impression in English

6. One phrase that can be used in chat
· I wonder if you can (Can you do it?)
· I've never thought about it. (Surely that's right)
