Forms of address. In U.S. culture, there are three titles which can be

used for women -miss, mrs. and ms, and one for men - mr. The title "dr."

is used in academic settings. Some professors will prefer to be

addressed by their first name. In the U.S., people tend to be informal.


Personal space and handshaking. Americans tend to guard their personal

space. Generally people stand 61 cm apart. People in the u.s. shake

hands when they are first introduced. Touching the elbow or kissing the

hand are considered too intimate.


Hello and goodbye. Americans are friendly. Strangers may smile to you

do these things in their classroom. Students also dress rather

informally. Students often wear jeans and tennis shoes to class. Jeans

are often purposely ripped for a "stylish" effect. Some students wear

revealing clothing -short skirts, tank tops, and sheer clothing.

Students also sk rather informally, sometimes on their own legs or

cross-legged. Students often rush to and from classes without saying

hello or good-bye to teachers. Sometimes students Come into classrooms

after the class period has begun, or leave before it has ended. They say

nothing to the teacher, since they may consider that interrupting would
