The English Language
How it is developed: The English language is today the most widely spoken of any language in the world. It is not only the native language of Britain and many other countries but it is also being learn by people of nations everywhere as the foreign language most useful to know.
How did it come to be the English language?
Body language is an important part of communication which, according to at least one study, constitutes around 55% of what we are communicating. If you wish to communicate well, then it makes sense to understand how you can (and can’t) use your body to say what you mean.
But not all body language means the same thing in different countries. Take China and America for example, stamping foot in China, means ones anger, while in America it means impatience. Clapping hands never happens to an American speaker, because its considered immodest in his own country. In China, however, it suggests the speakers appreciation and means thank you. Staring at people is thought as impoliteness in America. It may make people feel uneasy. But Chinese people may think it is nothing more than curiosity. These examples may show the differences of body language.
