It all depends. If I am the hostess then I make sure that I am near the entrance and ensure that I greet each person as they arrive. If a person arrives on their own or it's their first time within the group then I introduce them to somebody who I feel they would get along with and also that eases them into the occasion.

Firstly, don't call them poepel, sounds to much like poephol..

And if the hostess or host does not know you have arrived, go up to them, and say hello. You should have a little gift with you. Chocs of a bottle of wine etc. She should then introduce you to people. Maybe there is someone there you know. Go up and join his/her group. Just never just stand there not saying anything. Get your topics in a row before you go.

If you enter a room you should say hello. Men should stand and shake hands in greeting (woman tend to sit but still shake hands) A small gathering should require name greetings whereas a room of collegues should be a general greeting to everyone.

Some nationalities will wait to be greeted before replying...depending on who is the most superior..Superior says hello and inferior returns greeting. lf superior does not greet inferior..inferior asumes he has displeased superior. Inferior walks around all day with a long face and does not look superior in the eye.

You greet the people first and then bow down or curtesy.

It all depends on the situation. If you enter the room while not many are talking you can greet them but if everyone is involved in their own little conversations then rather go up to the people you know, or the quieter group if you dont know anyone, and say hi there first

In my culture the person who is in motion has to greet those that are stationary. If you find them in the room consider it their house. Would you get into my house and proceed to sit down without greeting. If the chairs are reserved you greet and then start looking for your chair. Yeah, unless you are housebreaking. If you are walking along the street past my house and you spot me you should be the one shouting the greetings.
