Shortly after the restart the car was stopping again, although I didn't brake. I had tried five times to restart it. The instructor got angry, he taught me how to restart a car. The examiner moved into the driving seat and I had pushed the car to the nearest service station where I pay for the petrol. Then I had tried several times but the car wouldn't start. I was feeling awful. I am not surprised that I failed the test. Ex. 7. Translate the article. Чтоделать можно, а что - нельзя? Что можно или нельзя сделать и сказать очень сильно отличается от страны к стране. Например, знак "большой палец вверх" (thumb up) во всем мире обозначает "ОК", но не в Австралии. Вы не должны делать такой жест (sign), это очень грубо. Вы можете бросить сигарету на улице Европы, но нельзя это сделать в Сингапуре. Это преследуется законом (illegal). Представления (idea) о том, что вежливо и не вежливо также различны. В Корее, например, вы должны обязательно прикрыть рот рукой, когда вы смеетесь, женщине нельзя входить в дверь первой, это должен делать мужчина. В Германии следует идти слева от женщины, а в Англии мужчина должен идти между женщиной и дорогой. В Америке нельзя дарить часы, это плохой знак. В Англии когда кто-то чихает (sneeze), вы должны сказать "Bless you", что предохраняет вас от дьявола (beep away). Таковы традиции.
