27 Work in groups of four. Read the following questions and then choose one to discuss together.
If you meet a foreigner who comes up close to you to talk, what countries might he be from? How can you show him that you are uncomfortable with that? If a girl in shorts goes into a Muslim house and a man takes her outside pointing at her shoes and shorts, what should she do? Guess why he is so particular. What are some situations where body language is the only form of communication? Why?
