Non verbal communication

Filipino people sometimes use their heads to convey a message. Some people from other countries may find it disrespectful but Filipinos, in normal circumstances where verbal responses are not really required, one can just nod their heads to show support, approval, acceptance, and understanding. Nodding is also used when someone would say ‘yes’ instead of saying it verbally. It is usually done twice or with two consecutive slow nods. Some Filipino people use their eyebrows, raising those up and down (still done twice) but only in times where one is not really needed to be formal because that can’t be proper during formal conversations.
