WAYS OF SOCIALIZING
To attract someone’s attention so that we (31)…….. speak to that person, we can use either verbal or non-verbal forms of communication. Let us look at non-verbal communication in English. Probably the (32)…….. common way of attracting someone’s attention is by waving. For example, if we are at a noisy party and see a friend come in the door about 20 metres away, we might raise our hand and wave to her as a signal that we see her. But how hard can we wave in a situation like this? Suppose you are (33)… …. the airport, and you see your brother get off the plane and begin walking toward you. If you are excited, you might jump up and down and wave as hard as you can …(34)…… his attention. This is the instance where big, obvious non-verbal signals are appropriate. There are, however, some social situations where smaller non-verbal signals are more appropriate. In a restaurant, for example, if we want to attract the (35)………….of our waiter, we have several choices. We can wait until he passes near us, catch his eye, and nod slightly to let him know we would like him (36)….…… to our table. Or we can raise our hand slightly to show that we need assistance. We do not whistle or clap our hands to get the person’s attention. That is considered impolite and even rude. In most social situations where some informality (37)……… allowed, a brief raise of the hand and a small wave is fine. For instance, if you are walking across the schoolyard and see your teacher approaching you, a small friendly wave to attract his or her attention is appropriate. Once you’ve got your friend’s attention, you shouldn’t point at the person or thing you want her to look at. A slight nod will do. Pointing at someone is usually (38)………….. rude. Of course, there are times when pointing is (39)……….. acceptable, such as when a teacher wants to get someone’s attention in class. The teacher often points (40)……. the student and says, “David, would you read the next sentence, please?” Pointing here is not impolite; it’s simply a way to get someone’s attention.
