CANADIAN, EH ?
One of the things that many students remark on when living in Canada, particularly in Vancouver, is that they find Canadian people to be very friendly. So friendly, in fact, that they often complimented by strangers on things like their clothes or hairstyles. This can be a bit shocking or unnerving for people of some cultures.
Don’t be surprised if someone asks you where you got your jacket or if someone simply tells you that they love your shirt. This is a common cultural behaviour and if you pay attention to Canadians you will notice that people often compliment each other. In fact, I expect to receive a compliment from my colleagues if I change my hairstyle or get a new suit! Therefore, the next time someone compliments you, don’t feel nervous, simply smile and say Thank you !:)
