The wolf and stork
A long, long time ago, the wolf and the stork were friends. One day, the wolf asked the stork to come to his house to eat.
When the stork arrived at the wolf’s house, the wolf put two bowls of soup on the table. The wolf ate his bowl of soup so quickly. When he finished, he asked the stork, “did you like my soup?”.
But the stork was angry because he couldn’t eat the soup. His beak was too long! When the stork when home, he was still hungry. The wolf laughed and laughed.
Then the stork had an idea. He asked the wolf to come to dinner. He filled two tall pitches with good soup. They began to eat. When the stork finished eating, he asked the wolf if he wanted more to eat.
But the wolf was angry. His mouth was so big that he couldn’t get it into the pitcher. The wolf went home hungry, and stork laughed and laughed.
The wolf and stork have never been friends ever since.

Body language is an important part of every language. This body language, however, is interpreted differently from culture to culture.
An American- style smile, for example, is big and friendly. Americans are never afraid of showing their teeth. They don’t cover their smile with their hands because they think that such a gesture is a silly thing to do. In fact, putting the hand in front of the mouth when laughing is considered impolite. It means that you are making fun of the other person.
When speaking, Americans don’t close their eyes. This eye contact is very important in the U.S.. They believe that ‘honest people look at you directly, dishonest people look to the side, and embarrassed people look down’. If you close your eyes while talking with them, they will think you either bored or asleep.
