It occurs to us all that China and America differ in kinds of aspects. Today we will go into detail to analyze the nature through what we see.

In my view, there are lots of differences between China and America.

First, the styles of architecture in this two countries are special. China's constructions are wonderful, because the elements of Chinese traditional decoration includes the essence of Chinese palace, temple and garden. What's more, just as we can see, they are formal, which make you feel serious. While American tend to prefer a more fashionable style when building their houses. They may design something special to decorate their buildings which are mixed by a series of elements from different culture.

Second, the arts of these two countries are not the same, such as paintings. American painters emphasize the quest of truth and Chinese people focus on the harmony of man and nature. Oil paintings are everywhere in America, but ancient Chinese were interest in cements.

Last but not least, they differ in language and grammar. When a Chinese is describing an object,he don’t need to say the word"a”,but that in America is not the same. Besides, the word about animal and their meat sometimes are the same, but in Chinese they are completely different. There are no passive in Chinese is another difference.

What lead to those distinctive mentioned above? As we all know that China and America have different history. China is an ancient countries with 5000 years of history while America is a new countries which has strongly being affected by Indian culture. African culture. European culture and so on, so people in USA are more easily to accept new things. The other reason is that Chinese culture is stress on nature, we can draw this conclusion by reading poems in ancient China. That is to say nature is an essential image in Chinese people's heart. Some complex elements such as bureaucracy are also relative to the differences.

In a nutshell, the differences of culture show evidence of so many different phenomena.I think to accept difference and absorb good part is of great importance to us all.
