        I. Face concept in Chinese society
        The Face concept means that people in China treat their face as public image and also as a reciprocal usage of maintaining a good relationship. By not making mistakes in public, people intend to save their Face, which also means protecting public image in social life.
        Chinese people care about their face and they protect it all the time for the reason that face represents public-image. This cultural factor is deeply rooted in people’s mind and they even are not aware about it. And this phenomenon has already saturated into every part of Chinese people’s life.
        1. The origin of the Face concept
        Although the Face concept is very common in some other countries,, in China this cultural factor is more obvious and people may not aware about this. According to Xiaoying (2011), the Face concept is derived from its elemental role in human sociality in general. And at the same time, its high salience is showed in China. The Chinese saying that a person needs face like a tree needs bark indicates the importance of face to participate in Chinese society. (Peter, C. & James, S., 2003) As we all known, trees cannot live without bark. In ancient China, losing Face had a detrimental effect for a person and his relatives, even as severe as life issues.
