extrafresh 13 / 32 May 6, 2011 #1Hi there,There were several assignmments on the same topic already. I tried mine part. Please anyone feel free to polish it. I knew that there are some grammatical and writing mistakes but I have no idea how to correct it. Please anyone can help.Or you can emiall me at email@example.comAppreciations.Write about the following topic:Some people believe that visitors to other countries should follow local customs and behavior. Others disagree and think that the host country should welcome cultural differences. Discuss both this views and give your own opinion.Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.It is widely accept that the tourists should respect local customs and behavior to the foreign countries. But some people raised concern of the host country should show its openness to different cultures. Personally I think the both 2 sides do not contradict with each other at all.Knowing the languages and cultures of foreign country is not only for communicating easily with local people but the most important thing is to avoid awarkward situation and mis-understanding in cross-culture social life. For example, in Arab religious the left hand is usually associated with such negative things as dirty, unclean and sexual. It is usually considered offensive if you shake hands with the left hand but in Korea culture they must shake with their left hand.Moreover, economic globallization leads to frequent contact in culture around the world. Learning different cultures does not mean to change the origin culture and identity. When it comes to the host country, thanks to openness and exporsure, local people and government benefits a lot from the diversity of traditional culture. For instance, more and more cross-border projects require assistances and participations of different counties.Without questioning, it is quite hard to reach an absolute conslusion to this issue. Certainly for sure that the situation is win-win game for both sides.
