Tina: Hi! Emma, long time no see. How was your life in England?
Emma: Is you, Tina! Im glad to see you. I was back to China a few days ago. I had a great time in my study in England. It is a beautiful country and the people there are very kind, although sometime I got myself embarrassed because of the different culture.
Tina: Really？Whats the exact difference between the west culture and the east culture? Could you give me some examples?
Emma: My pleasure! You never know how polite British people are in public places. Whatever they go to buy tickets or food, they all like to queue up! They comply so much with the public order. And all people in England think that honesty is an important factor to judge whether a person has good character or not. They hate liars!
