In every culture, giving compliments is a common thing to do. However, the diferents in some ways from culture to culture .
In Indonesia if we see one of our friends wearing a beautiful new dress, most of us tend to keep silent and say nothing g about the dress rather than expressing our admiration. English people, hovewer, tend to express it by giving compliments.
e.g : -You look pretty in your new dress.
-I like the color of your new dress.
It also difers in how we respond to compliments. For Indonesians, in many cases, it is common to see people refusing a compliment by saying, “Tidak! Baju ini sudah lama.” As a consequence when we speak in Englis we tend to respond the same way and say, “No! it’s an old dress. I bought it last year.”
Nevertheless, such a respone is not appropriate in Englis culture. Native speakers tend to accept a compliment, particularly if it is a sincere one, by saying thank you plus add one or two other statements supporting it.
e.g : “Thank you. I like it very nuch. I particularly like its color and style.”
Im responding to a compliment, most Indonesian speakers, tend to be quiet, do not give any comments, and tend to refuse the compliments with a few disagreeing statements.
western civilization inclined more get expression
and they responsive it with expression thank. other the things of with our culture. our culture is inclined more humiliates self and less can get a praise.
praise actually of vital importance to motivating somebody, all at once to give appreciation on what he was doing. and that's
