What Is Nonveral Communication in England?

Common nonverbal communication in England is a handshake to greet someone, kissing or hugging to greet a very close loved one, provide adequate personal space and not staring at others as they see it as rude. The peace sign of the pointer finger and the middle finger pointing upward that is common in the United States has a derogatory meaning in England.

Nonverbal communication accounts for the majority of a person's daily communication as only about 7-35 percent of all communication is verbal. The nonverbal of "yes" and "no" in the form of head shakes, still means the same thing in England, as well as in many other countries.
