In my country, Brasil, we shake hands, sometimes Kisses, The peoples in Sao Paulo are very colds.....For exemplo, me too....

Hello, in France we kiss or we shake hands

Hello. I am from Kazakhstan. In my country we hug

In my country people say hello with a kiss. I heard the foreigners wonder about that, because the Argentines greet and say goodbye with a kiss for each and every one of the people who are present, whether at work, in the classroom, in the pub, although there is not much trust between they... everyday! It's a bit exhausting for me, but they think it's impolite if you just say "Hola!" or "Chau!"

In Brazil, when is a man, i like to shake hand and hug. But, when is a woman i like to kiss her face for 3 times (on each side of the face) and and hug.

we shake hands

Please, explaine me how to use Cambridge dictionary online. Is it possible to address to online dictionary from this site (you wrote to write on the right in the window) or it's necessary to copy this word and then try to open it in the site with Cambridge dictionary. Sorry, I am so stupid.

Hello AlexS,

I'm afraid Cambridge no longer allow websites to link directly to their dictionary, so you have to go to the dictionary page.

There are many dictionaries to choose from online and it's often a good idea to try several:

Cambridge

Oxford

Merriam-Webster

Collins

Macmillan

I often say 'hello' with my friends. Sometimes I shake hands with men. With my foreigner friends, I bow and hug them.
