English blog (36) : Hands and Fingers (1)

The topic of Matsumi Ladies Clinic Mita English blog in September is about hands and fingers.

In the first part, I create an article about hands suitable for easy reading.

 

The hand gesture is a powerful tool for communication.

When you are passionately talking about something, perhaps your hands are also dramatically moving to convey your enthusiasm to the listeners.

Even when speaking a foreign language, the same thing happens.

The more you struggle to communicate, the bigger the gesture you will have as you need to rely on the hand gestures.

 

A handshake is a familiar gesture made in the first meeting in western countries.

American’s handshake differs from French.

American move their arm up and down a few times, while French do it once, just up and down.

For Japanese, it is not as comfortable as them because we bow each other, instead of shaking hands.

 

Are you left-handed?

Only 10% of people are reported to be left-handed.

They enjoy an advantage for that, especially when playing sports, such as tennis and baseball.

Left-handers are also said to be good at musical memory tasks.

 

Learning a different culture is fascinating.

Etiquette for a Japanese shrine is interesting.

Visitors are requested to wash a left hand first and a right hand next before praying.

The left hand is regarded as an impurity.

Indians eat food with their right hands and use their left hands to deal with not-so-clean stuff, such as washing their feet and bottom.

 

How about your country?

Do you know any funny stories about hands?

Please let me know!
