The way to give business cards in China is to both pass and receive a card using both hands. The person giving the card will also present the card with the words facing the receiver. This way the person receiving the card will immediately be able to read it.

It is also polite to address the person with their job title and name directly after receiving the card.

I'd like to hear the "culture shocker" that you have experienced.

在中国,递送名片和接受名片时均要用双手。递送名片时,要让文字正面朝向对方。这样的话,接受名片的人可以马上看到名片上的内容。接受名片后,可以直接称呼对方的姓名和职位,这也是一种礼貌的行为。
