    Hello!

    Could I also say: "Get on!"

    Thank you

    This shaking of the head is body language for "No." Is this not used in Vietnam?

    Corum appears to be looking round desperately for the answer.
    It is: No - unless you want your friend to sit on the roof of the car.

    If you are riding a motor cycle, 'get on' is fine.

    Oh my god, is this man shaking his head ?
    I'm really not such a dullard, I'm browsing web with Opera mini Browser on my Nokia 6300 so I didn't see the shaking, it is a still image to me !
    Thanks !

    Without the movement, the graphic wouldn't be much help as an answer.
