Hi James.Interested lesson from you and helps people who emigrate from East to West (like me) to understand the new mentality.But as I’ve noticed since I have been living in UK ,some “cultural difference “become common;for exemple,many companies from UK are interested of 5 years history of work and if you had a goal ,you have to explain why did you have it…so an so.From this point of view I’m inclined to belive that some rules from East have influenced the West.As like you,I don’t know if it is good or bad !

Profile photo of Cornelly Cornelly

    Actually, nowadays people in China also care about the results seriously. From this point of view, West also have influenced the East.

Thanks for your great lesson. After having lived in Australia, which I think it is still considered as West, for almost nine years, I can see now more clearly that there is absolute difference between West and East. I like things more in Western way.

Thank you James for interesting lesson about culture. I think the different approach between west and east in the 5th point is the most important and many things depend on it . If the law isn’t same for all ,there isn’t normal development .

The differences between West and East are not so much those between cultures as those between countries with democracy, freedom and rule of law and countries without these things above. I come from China and I myself never identify with so called “Chinese culture.” Where there is human rights, where my home is.

Hi James,
I respect you a lot as a very professional teacher of English for a long time.However the contents about “cultural differences..”are a little superficial and useless for me .The world it’s a little more big and different than you think.
But if it’s for fun ,ok!!! Sorry for my personal frankness!
Thank you very much for everything else.

Wow! James, you really have a special skill to choose interesting themes. And I agree with you about those differences. Generally speaking, in the Western World we are more individualist, imediatist and we don’t mind the traditios very much. However, I think we also are more tranquil and calm comparing to the Eastern World, where pepleo seem to be too strict with themselves and then become very stressed. By the way, I didn’t know you were British. That is nice!

Hi James! nice lesson, really appreciate it! I’ve been thinking about one thing related to cultural differences recently, and I haven’t find answer. I even talked with one interpreter here in Ukraine about it (Hi from Ukraine by the way).The thing is the way you call strangers. In Russian we have word “дядя” or “тетя” literally mean uncle and aunt, and these words related not only to family ties but also to any strange man and woman (especially used between little child and parent) When child walks in a park with his mom and approaches to stranger and tries talk to him, mom might suggest that this is “дядя” which sounds quit friendly whereas “stranger” seems to sound cold and alienated. The question is are there in English similar words to russian “дядя и тетя” ? Hope my question makes sense)))

Profile photo of Mark Mischenko Mark Mischenko

Hi James, thank You for this fabulous full of wisdom video, this has explained a loooooooot, I am from the Czech Republic..what is considered as East, by my opinion is not a quiet true, geographicaly we’re right in the central Europe. I can confirm I feel like that, just somewhere between the EAST and WEST thinking. Otherwise I would recomend to see your nice explanation to everyone, cause it may make our world much better more tolerant and friendly place. You are precious teacher thanks for the inspiration)))

Probably the difference between westerners and easterners are not that much, especially when we talk about the young generations. Personally speaking, I will never make “Serving the master” or “Serving for the greater good” a priority, since I believe that you cannot talk about the public welfare or the national development without respecting individual choices. I strongly believe that the gap between west and east is minimizing, don’t you agree or disagree with me? I’m looking for your opinions. By the way, I like your videos, truly. :)

Haha, how come after I watched this lesson I felt violated some how. But what James said was pretty much true. I am from China. We have a lot of famous people from our history. Usually they were poets or authors and left some really nice works or ideas. But we do not really know what they were like. We just have been told that they are good people. In that clock case, I feel ashamed, I do not even know why we like being late for 5 or 10 minutes. What I think is we just get used to it and we do not mind being late. That is it.

James, you wrote:
“If you are have a conversation with a western friend and you disagree with them, which is your best approach?” For me the correct sentence would be “If you ……..and you disagree with HIM (instead of THEM).
Similarly, in the next quiz you used “If you are on date with your new Western girlfriend and you want to impress them, which would they care about more?” again, for me, the correct would be “If …..to impress HER, wich would SHE care about more?

Could you help me to undestand your grammar stand point?

Hello everybody, and a big thanks to Mr James for this helpful lesson about difference culture between Western and Eastern people. I agree with you Mr James about all point that you cited in general, but if we analyse the situation deeply we will find that cultures are mixed now, because as you know the world became a smaller town, for example the people from America or Canada live in foreign country like China or japan and the opposite too. personally, i’m from Algeria and our culture is almost close to East country, now i’ll make one eye to one point, if for example i make a date with a friend to meet at 9:30, certainly he will come at 9:40 and the same for me, i know that it’s not good and we have to change it because time is expensive, but this is the truth , this is our culture. Salam.
