LIFE EXPERIENCE

What are American customs that seem weird to foreigners?

These are American cutoms or habits: (totally different from China)

1. Americans love to drink cold water, bwhile if we drink cold water in China, we will be blamed by tour parents. American girls drink cold water even during their period.

2. Salads are very popular in the United States. Mushrooms, broccoli, etc. can be eaten raw. But no one in China eats these vegetables raw.

3. I often see American classmates throwing dirty shoes into the washing machine. Almost no one in China does this.

4. Americans will step on the sofa without taking off their shoes.

5. Americans really drink coffee every day.While only company staff or rich people drink coffee in China coz coffee is not cheap here.

6. Cars are a necessity for Americans, maybe because public transportation is not as convenient as China? While actually we don’t need a car except some special cases.
