As a Chinese student preparing to study in the United States, what aspects of life in the United States should be considered in advance? Do we need to adapt to the differences in living habits between China and the United States before we go to the United States? Is there any good way to solve some of the differences in living habits that we may encounter?

Americans are determined not to drink warm or hot water, and only drink water at room temperature or ice. If they really want something hot, they will drink coffee or tea. Chinese people like to drink hot water.

There is a big difference in diet between Chinese and American living habits. We can find that many people in America like to eat high-calorie food, so the obesity rate is very high in America, while China pays more attention to health preservation and food ingredients matching. Besides, American people like to drink coffee while Chinese people like to drink tea, which is something you need to get used to when you go to America.

There are many differences in Chinese and American life due to the differences in Chinese and American cultures. For example, drinking hot water: I believe that many Chinese, especially older people, have the habit of drinking hot water. This is unimaginable for people in many Western countries. In American restaurants, usually the waiter will give you a glass of water filled with ice, and usually only Asian restaurants will provide hot water. In this regard, many girls will be very uncomfortable. What you can do is ask the waiter not to add ice or order a hot drink. This is just one example. There are many examples of this. I think this requires you to discover it slowly.

Americans tend to tip 10% to 15% after eating outside, while Chinese don’t have this habit. We should pay attention to this.
