I'm still having a bit of trouble with my introduction and thesis. This is what I have, I hope it's any better.

Greetings and Gestures

All culture groups have various ways of communicating with each other whether it is through speaking, sign language, or body movement. Although most cultures might share the same basic emotions, the different forms of communication may vary from culture to culture, especially when it comes to greetings and gestures. As some forms may be universal with certain cultures, it might not be with others which can cause problems for some when they are not aware of what is allowed and what is not. In addition, because first impression is most important when first meeting someone, it is imperative to handle situations correctly, as some people might take it offensively or personally if not handled the appropriate manner. "While some greetings and gestures may be acceptable in one culture, it may not be so in another, which is why it is important to be aware of the cultural differences to avoid any misunderstanding."
