CULTURE TIP

In the US, it is common for friendly neighbors to allow each other to borrow tools or other things you might not have. For example, if you don’t have the tools you need to fix or build something and you don’t want to buy them, you can ask a neighbor or friend if you can use theirs. Another option is to go to a rental center or hardware store to rent what you need. You can also call a handyman to help you.

Culture Tip Read the tip. Ask What would you do if you needed a tool you didn’t have? Do you share your things with people here? Who? Did you share stuff with your neighbors in your native country?
