One night at dinner with my family my mother-in-law said that I must be turning Japanese. When I asked her why she thought so, she said it was because everyone else was using more gestures than I while they talked. And while I don’t thinking I am becoming Japanese, she is right about people using a lot of gestures. Americans can be very expressive and using gestures is one way they can express themselves more. So using more gestures may be one way you too can speak English more like a native English speaker. Please give it a try sometime!
