Immediately after introductions are made there is usually a period of time in which impersonal or trivial subjects and discussed. This type of conversation, called “small talk”, is important because it often helps to keep conversations and can lead into interesting discussions.

Usually people start small talk by asking about things like family, work, school or sports. The parents are waiting for the kids who are playing on the grand; they ask each other questions like “Do you live in this area?” “Which kindergarten or school of your kid’s in?” “Where do you work?” “Do you like sports?” It is also common for people to ask such questions as “where do you come from” “how do you like living here?” and not personal or private, But it is uncommon and considered impolite to ask questions about a person’s salary, such as “how much money do you make?” They don’t ask how much money someone paid for something, for example, “how much does your house cost?” It is OK to ask children how old they are, but it is not polite to ask older people about their ago, especially women. It is not polite to ask people questions about politics or religion either unless you know them very well. People don’t ask unmarried people, “why are you single”, and they don’t ask a married couple with no children, “Why don’t you have any children?”. These are generally considered too personal for first meetings.

As we all know the people’s relationship is cooler than before, even live in the same floor, they don’t know each other’s surname, only greeting and say hello in between, it didn’t like before when I was a little girl, I lived in the cottage area, lunch and dinner we all shared in our neighbors, after school our kids were riding the bike to go home, nobody pick up. The mind was much simple and you can touch it.

General speaking, we may know and learn from now on, what’s the way is more suitable and polite in people’s relationship.
