This is a quick guide to understanding life in the United States. Life in the United States is not quite like it is in the movies or on TV. For people who are unfamiliar with its culture, there is the potential for confusion and embarrassing situations. Nine broad topics (first impressions of America, body language, social customs and manners, relationships, celebrations and gifts, surviving the city, the workplace, schools, and health and personal matters) are covered through an engaging and easy-to-read question-and-answer format in form of letters from immigrant students to their teacher. From tips for job interviews to garage sales and dating, "Life in the USA" offers immigrant students helpful hints and answers for becoming comfortable in the United States of America.
