For example, in Australia, a birthday cake for a 21-year-old is often shaped like a

key. It means the person is an adult and can come home at any time. In parts of Africa, people give a cow as a wedding present, because they believe that a cow can bring good luck to the newly-weds. Before Korean students take university entrance tests, their friends give them sticky rice candy for luck. The friends hope that the students will pass the test and "stick to" the university. The following short conversations will tell you about different customs in China, Argentina, Switzerland, Italy and Japan. Number 1: China Woman: Did I tell you I'm going to China? Man: China? Great. Woman: Yes. I'm going to Shanghai on business. I have to buy some gifts. Man: Good idea. What are you going to take? Woman: I was thinking of bringing some handkerchiefs. They're colorful, beautiful? also lightweight. I don't want to carry anything heavy. Man: Ah, I don't think you should give handkerchiefs. They aren't a good gift in Chinese culture. Woman: Why not? Man: A handkerchief is a symbol of saying goodbye. Woman: Saying goodbye? Man: Yeah, like when you're going away ... and people are crying, so they need a handkerchief. Actually, I've heard that one of the best things to give is a dinner -- not a present, but a big dinner. It's good for business. Number 2: Argentina Woman: This is interesting. Did you know that in Argentina you should never give clothing unless you know the person really well? Man: Don't give clothing? Why not? Woman: Clothing -- even things like ties -- are too personal. Only good friends give them. Man: Huh? I never thought of a tie as being personal ... just uncomfortable. What should you bring? Woman: I don't know. Maybe something for the house. Number 3: Switzerland Man: We're meeting Mr. Mertz and his wife for dinner. Maybe I should take flowers or something ... Yeah, I'll pick up some red roses. Woman: You'd better not give them roses. In Switzerland, they could be a symbol of love and romance. Man: Oh, I didn't know that. Woman: I think candy or chocolate might be better. Number 4: Italy Woman: I'd like some flowers. Uh ... those. About ten, I guess. Man: Ma'am, I don't think you should give ten flowers. In Italy, even numbers -- 2, 4, 6, and so on -- are bad luck. Woman: Even numbers are bad luck? OK, I'll take nine flowers then. Number 5: Japan Woman: May I help you? Man: I'm going to stay with a family in Japan. I need to get something for them.

Woman: Pen sets are always a good gift. Man: Oh, that's a good idea. Let's see ... There are sets with a pen and pencil ... and bigger sets with four pens. Woman: You said you're going to Japan? Man: Yeah. Woman: Don't give a set of four pens -- in fact, don't give four of anything. Man: Why not? Woman: The Japanese word for "four" sounds like the word for "death." It's bad luck. Man: Thanks for telling me. I'll take the pen and pencil set. Woman: Good choice. These sets make very good gifts. After all, pens write in any language! Man: Uh ... yeah. Right.
