  23. Reading Strategy: understanding the use of examples The text we read is a dialogue on cultural differences. So in this kind of text we should use examples to explain concepts and ideas. Sometimes we use examples to support arguments and sometimes used as interesting stories.

  24. Read the dialogue carefully and try to find out the sentences explaining the concept of cultural differences between English speakers from different countries. I have fond childhood memories of Bonfire Night, but my American friends are not familiar with that particular festival.

  25. Try to find out the example used as an interesting story about cultural misunderstanding. … the British who opened the present as soon as he received I at the end-of- term ceremony.
