I need help with an Egyptian culture assignment. I need someone who is either Egyptian, of Arab descent, or knows a lot about present culture to anwer a short questionnaire. I will use the responses to write a paper and create a Powerpoint presentation. Below are the questions, I would greatly appreciate any help. Thanks in advance!!

Cultural Interview
1.Culture and/or country of interviewee:

2.How do people greet each other –(shake hands, bow, embrace, other)?


3.As a visitor to the country, would you exchange gifts at the first meeting? What gifts are considered appropriate? If flowers, what kind? (Some have special meanings.)

4.How are children educated? At what age do they begin school? Do boys and girls generally go to separate schools, or are they separated by sex in the same school?

5.What is the literacy rate for the country? You can find this information by looking at CountryWatch.com and/or the EIU database available at Franklin University’s library Web site.
Don’t answer #5, I will do it

13.What are the important holidays? Are there special observances of these holidays?


14.Where and how do people get married? What is the average marriage age? Is it acceptable not to get married? What is the attitude toward divorce?

15.What is the national language of the country? Are other languages spoken?


16.What is the principal religion(s) of the country? What are the basic beliefs or doctrines of these religions?

17.Who are (or were) the major artists and writers?

Hmm... I think the only member of the board that is of Egyptian descent is Nefertari-Anubis, but I haven't seen her on in a while...

A place to check for the person you're looking for might be at http://www.glyphdoctors.com/.

I'm sorry I couldn't be of any real help, but good luck with your project!
