Cultural Insight
Becky: Now it’s time for a quick cultural insight.
Laura: In formal situations, when they’re meeting someone for the first time, people in Mexico greet each other by shaking hands. On the other hand, if we meet someone in an informal setting, we give a kiss on the cheek. So don’t be surprised if this happens to you!
Becky: And that’s all for this lesson. Don’t forget to check out the lesson notes, and we’ll see you in the next lesson!
Laura: Hasta pronto.
