Building strong cross-cultural skills starts with learning to listen to all aspects of the communication. This is why you need to put aside your busy habits. Busy habits keep you from picking up the whole communication. The easiest way to improve your cross-cultural communication is simply to slow down and focus on the conversation.

Good video Martin. Cindy, great point about "focus". When you think about it your points also apply to different english speaking cultures.

Cindy,

Hungarian is belonging to the same language group as Finnish and Estonian. The thing is that they don't really understand each other! ;) You will find some similarities in numbers and some words, but overall they are very different to each other.

I am funny mood today, so I have to share a Monty Python sketch: "Dirty Hungarian Phrasebook." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6D1YI-41ao

For your information, I spent three months in Sopron, Hungary, doing a school project for a manufacturing company. I enjoyed my time in Hungary, but I must say that Hungarian is probably one of the most difficult languages. I had to brush up on my German and I tried to teach some English to members of the older generation. I learned a few phrases and words in Hungarian. Mind you, no "dirty" words... ;)

Cute video! When I think of a difficult "European" language I usually think of Finnish, because their grammar is apparently extremely complicated. It's true I never think of the East European languages.

Great video. When I first moved to France I had a similar phrase book. All of the phrases were correct, they were just translated in the most rude style possible.
