Freedom

1.        Why is this important?为什么自由很重要?

Americans think that freedom is the premise of all kind of actions; it’s highly connected to their belief of individualism. Every individual has the freedom of being different from others, say what they want and act however they want.美国人认为自由是所有行动的前提,他们高度的崇尚个性主义.每个个体可以自由的与众不同,也就是说他们想做什么就做什么.

Informality

1.        What are the examples do you have in terms of informality-casual?请举出一些他们非正式或者很随便的例子?

People doing grocery shopping in their pjs. 人们去购物

In post-secondary education institutes, such as KSU, you can hardly ever see anyone actually suited up, even the professors or the school president dress up casually in jeans and t-shirts.在中等的学术研究院里,比如像堪萨斯州立大学,你会很难找到穿着西装革履的人,即使是教授或是校长也通常穿着牛仔裤和T-恤衫.

People call those who are older than them by name.人们通常叫彼此的名字即使是比自己年长的人.

In some German classes I took, students are asked to stand up and say hello to the instructor in the beginning of every class. While in classes held by American instructors it’s totally unnecessary.在我之前上过的一些德语课堂上,在课前同学们都站着对教师问好.但当上课的是美国讲师的时候,起立或是问好的事就不是那么必要了.

Americans say “hi” to me when we first meet. My advisor always dresses like a builder.当我们第一次见面的时候,美国人通常说“嗨”.我的系主任总是穿得像个建筑工人.

Time

1.       Americans consider time as the most precious thing; they try to save as much time as possible. Besides valuing their own time, everybody is expected to not waste other people’s time. Time is treated as resource and money; time should be used for constructive, future oriented activities.美国人认为时间是最宝贵的东西,他们尽可能的去珍惜时间.除了去珍惜他们自己的时间的同时,每个人也不去浪费别人的时间.时间被看作是资源和金钱.时间应该被用在积极有益的,以未来为方向的活动中去.

2.       Efficiency is important to Americans mainly because they value time. In American culture, the definition of successful is based on how full a person’s schedule is and how well he can handle his time. Americans believe that efficiency leads to success. 效率对美国人来说是非常重要的,因为他们重视时间.在美国文化中,成功的定义基于一个人的时间表有多满以及他是如何去安排他的时间的.美国人认为效率可以通向成功.

Examples: In schools, students are told to show up ahead of time so classes can be held on time.例如:在学校,学生被要求按时到校,以便能准时开课.

Everybody has a planer in order to organize his or her time.每个人都是设计者,都可以使他或者她的时间得到最有效地工作.

When making appointment with advisor, the student needs to respect the advisor’s time schedule.当和系主任预约的时候,学生需要遵从系主任的时间表.
