I have a Danish "friend" living in the US who reads my blog from time to time and she always gives me a great perspective on things from "the other side" and this week is no different. Her comment on my post "Big Mac, Anyone" was AWESOME and gave me a great idea that I need your help with!
I have just decided that I am going to do a "What do you need to know about the US before October 1" blurb with my "Seattle Kids" every time I teach them between now and our departure. I was already telling them random facts about life in the US and names for things as I thought of them, but now I want it to be more organized..... So they can make some notes to take with them.
Annarella (my Danish "electronic friend" who lives in Seattle) already gave me 2 things for the list:
1. Tipping Protocol in the US
2. Sales Tax--because in DK, the 25% sales tax is already on the price tags of things so you what you see, is what you pay.
So now I need your help this week..
If you had a foreign student coming to live with you for a few months, what "lessons" would you teach them so that life in the US could be as simple as possible for them?
Seattle, here we come!!!!!!!!!
