Grade 9 Unit 3 Topic 2 Section B

(Jane meets Kangkang and Yukio at the school gate.)
Jane: (Waving) Hi, Kangkang and Yukio!
Yukio: (Bowing) Hello, Jane!
Kangkang: Yukio, when Jane says “Hi” she waves her hand, but when you say “Hello” you bow.
Yukio: In Japan, we bow when we are saying hello as a sign of respect.
Jane: In Canada, we wave as a sign of peace and friendship.
Kangkang: I think that is known as body language. We use body language to communicate how we feel, even if there is silence.
Yukio: Did you notice that Miss Wang smiles when she is happy, and when she is angry she puts her hands on her hips? Then I know whether she will praise or punish us.
Jane: (Laughing) When my little sister is angry, she crosses her arms and stamps her foot!
Kangkang: I wonder if body language means the same thing in all cultures.
Jane: We should do some research. People could communicate better if they knew more about their body language.
Yukio: Let’s ask Miss Wang and Ms. Jones if they will help us with our research.
Jane: That is a good idea. Goodbye, Kangkang. Goodbye, Yukio.
Kangkang and Yukio: (Waving) Goodbye, Jane.
