the differences and similarities between Chinese culture and American culture Every country has their own culture, which can stand out their differences. There are lots of differences and similarities between Chinese culture and American culture.

As for the difference, firstly, cultural differences on politeness between American and Chinese can be found in many aspects of daily communication, including addressing, greeting and parting, compliments, apologies, thanks and so on. For example, when people meet acquaintances or friends, people usually greet each other. In America, people often employ the following expressions to greet each other "Good morning/evening/afternoon. " or "Fine day, isn't it? " While in Chinese, we always say "have you eaten since " and "where are you going? " to show our consideration. Secondly, it's communication. A majority of Chinese people are accustomed starting the ritual interaction that goes with a welcoming cup of tea. In China no major business is conducted without eye contact, requiring face-to-face conversation. However, in America, a final agreement will normally be signed in person. However, people are meeting increasingly on television screens, conducting teleconferences to settle problems not only in this country but also-by satellite-internationally.

In spite of they have these differences, they have some similarities. In the china we think when we do some important things, we must spend

some. American for the most part costs a part time in important things. So in the culture of deal to in significant things, China and America has some similarities.
