Travel Dos and Don'ts
According to Will, a friendly gesture in one country might translate into an insult in another country. Discuss some basic cultural dos and don'ts in class that answer some of the following questions:

• Can you think of different types of clothing that may be appropriate or inappropriate to wear in certain countries?

• How do table manners differ among various cultures?

• What kinds of gestures might be misunderstood when you travel from one country to another?

"Diaries from the Road" featured on the Planet Work Web site is a great starting place to begin gathering information for these exercises.

Conduct further research to create a better picture of the taboos travelers should be aware of. Then design a brochure that informs Americans about these dos and don'ts in various countries.
