It’s not easy to communicate with lots of people using different languages in the global era. However, we can communicate with people from a variety of nations through hand gestures and actions. Body language is a nonverbal communication method, and it includes facial expressions and gestures. Here are a variety of simple hand gestures to communicate with foreigners.

There are many more hand gestures. Many countries have similar hand gestures, but there are also many different meanings. Knowing some hand gestures can be helpful for us to understand other cultures. Knowing what the gestures mean prevents people from misunderstanding others. Koreans do not often use gestures compared to foreigners. In conversation, gestures may give a good impression to others. I hope that more people use gestures. It can lead to a lively conversation and good mood.
