In a class I teach for adults， I recently assigned the students to “go to someone you love within the next week and tell them you love them. It has to be someone you have never said those words to before or at least haven‘t shared those words with for a long time. ”
At the beginning of our next class， I asked if someone wanted to share what happened when they told someone they loved them. I expected one of the women to volunteer， as was usually the case， but one of the men raised his hand. He appeared quite moved and a bit shaken.
He began by saying，“Dennis， I was quite angry with you last week when you gave us this assignment. I didn‘t feel that I had anyone to say those words to， and besides， who were you to tell me to do something so personal？ But as I was driving home my conscience started talking to me. It was telling me that I knew exactly who I needed to say ’I love you‘to . You see， five years age， my father and I had a vicious disagreement and never really resolved it ever since. We avoided seeing each other unless we absolutely had to at Christmas or other family gatherings. But even then， we hardly spoke to each other. So， by the time I got home I had convinced myself I was going to tell my father I loved him.
“It‘s odd， but just making that decision seemed to lift a heavy load off my chest.
“When I got home， 1 rushed into the house to tell my wife what I was going to do. When I finished， she hugged me， and for the first time in our married life she saw me cry， We stayed up half the night drinking coffee and talking. It was great.
“The next morning I was up early and bright. I was so excited that I could hardly sleep. I got to the office early and accomplished more in two hours than I had the whole day before.
“At 9：00 I called my dad to see if I could come over after work. When he answered the phone， I just said， ‘Dad， can I come over after work tonight？ I have something to tell you’My dad responded reluctantly，‘Now what？’I assured him it wouldn‘t take long， so he finally agreed.
“At 5：30， when I rang the doorbell of my parents‘ house， I prayed that Dad would answer the door， As luck would have it， he did.
“I didn‘t waste any time-I took one step in the door and said， ’Dad， I just came over to tell you that I love you. ‘
“Dad‘s face softened， the wrinkles seemed to disappear and he began to cry， He reached out and hugged me and said， ’I love you too， son， but I‘ve never been able to say it. ’
“Mom came over with tears in her eyes. I waved and blew her a kiss， Dad and I hugged for a moment longer and then I left. I hadn‘t felt that great for a long time.
“But that‘s not even my point. Two days after that visit， my dad， who had heart trouble but didn’t tell me， had an attack and ended up in the hospital， unconscious. I don‘t know if he’ll make it.
“So my message to all of you in this class is this： Don‘t wait to do the things that you know need to be done. Take the time to do what you need to do and do it now！

All of us communicate with one another verbally as well as non-verbally. Most of the time we are not aware that we‘re doing it. We knit our eyebrows or wave a hand， meet someone else’s eyes or look away， shift positions in a chair. We make these movements unconsciously. But researchers have discovered in recent years that there is a system to them almost as consistent （一致的） and comprehensible as language.
Every culture has its body language. A Frenchman talks and moves in French. The way an Englishman crosses his legs is nothing like the way a male American does it. In talking ， Americans are likely to end a statement with a droop of the head or hand， a lowering of the eyelids. They wind up a question with a lift of the hand or a widening of the eyes. With a future-tense verb they often gesture with a forward movement.
There are regional idioms （方式） too； an expert can sometimes pick out a native of Wisconsin just by the way he uses his eyebrows during conversations. You sex， ethnic background， social class and personal style all influence your body language. Nevertheless， you move and gesture within the American idiom.
The person who is truly bilingual （双语的） is also bilingual in body language. New York‘s famous mayor， Fiorello La Guardian， politicked （竞选市长活动） in English， Italian and Yiddish. When films of his speeches are run without sound. it’s not too difficult to identify from his gestures the language he was speaking. One of the reasons English-dubbed （英语配音） foreign films often seem flat is that the gestures don‘s match the language.
Usually， the wordless communication acts to qualify the words. What the non-verbal elements express very often， and very efficiently， is the emotional side of the message. When a person feels liked or disliked， often it‘s a case of“not what he said but the way he said it.” Psychologist Albert Mehrabian has worked out this formula （公式）： total impact of a message = 7 percent verbal+38 percent vocal+55 percent facial. The importance of the voice can be seen when you consider that even the words “I have you” can be made to sound sexy.
Experts in the study of communication through body movement are not prepared to spell out a precise vocabulary of gestures. When an American rubs his nose， it may mean he is disagreeing with someone or rejecting something. But there are other possible interpretations， too. Another example： when a student in conversation with a professor looks the older man in the eye a little longer than is usual， it can be a sign of respect and affection； it can be a subtle challenge to the professor‘s authority； or it can be something else entirely. The expert looks for patterns in the context， not for an isolated meaningful gesture.
