Europe,some   48   people might feel    49   .Even in China,we all know that etiquette is not the same in all situations.Perhaps we think that talking loudly in our own homes is fine,but there are other places where talking loudly is  50   .For example ,most people would agree that talking loudly in a library,a museum,or a movie theater is   51   .

Even if you are with your friends,it is better to keep your voice   52   in public places.In fact,we should also   53   not to cough or sneeze loudly in public.
