Format: Paperback
It's been a while since I read this, so my memory's not fresh, but it made a great impression on me. I loved the information on classroom etiquette in other cultures. Now I understand better why some students seem shy, or bring gifts, or cover their mouths when they talk. I also appreciated the lists of useful phrases in different languages. I plan to get this book from the library again, and would love to own it.

**Update** I like this so much, but it's getting more and more out of date. I wish it covered recent political developments affecting immigration, and several countries that I'm surprised aren't represented at all. One idea is to have my advanced students do a project of creating mini-chapters (or updates) on their own countries following the model of this book. Sharing the results as a class should be interesting to the diverse group of students, as well. Still a great book, with each chapter focusing on a particular country; easy to pick and choose the chapters most relevant to you.

The information in the book is outstanding, however, it did not cover the countries that I was interested in. The information is well organized.

I loved the speed at which I received this book! It was much appreciated as the local book store botched getting the book in a timely manner.
