Chinese: You look pale. What's the matter?
        American: I'm feeling sick A cold, maybe..
        Chinese: Go and see the doctor Drink more water Did you take any.. pills? Chinese medicine works wonderful. Would you like to try? Put on more clothes. Have a good rest.
        American: You are not my mother, are you?
        Cultural differences:Americans are relatively fancy personal independence. The subject of care is often seen as weak. When ideas or suggestions to each other, can not make the other side think they underestimate his abilities. Americans react to the first sentence above is usually "Take care of yourself. I hope you'll be better soon." Do not have to teach people how to do. Chinese people places ideas suggestions expressed concern, but also with siblings or parents who tone, or to someone who's tone, it does not work for the Americans.
        Special advice:Expressed concern for the patient, do not make suggestions.
        You can use the following sentence:
        (1) I'm sorry to hear that (you've got a bad cold).
        (2) I hope you'll be all right very soon.
        (3) Take extra care of yourself.
        (4) That's too bad. What's the matter?
        (5) How are you feeling now?
