Positive thread only:Which nationalities do you find the easiest to communicate with?

I find Turkish and Italian people are the easiest for me. Always open, funny and with no hang ups!

You?

Indian, Arab, and others.. I basically can communicate with most other ethnicities/races but one I have a hard time with is the Bourgeois of any group.

English. Real easy.

I don't travel ...so definitely English.

I know just--just what you are--ah-ah.


I like the way that you taste, when you're all up in my face.

Dutch
Speaking the same language kind of makes it easier to communicate, you know.

I agree about the Italians. Also Spanish and people from the Carribean and Phillipines.

Though generally it's the particular people rather than their nationality, I reckon you find the same cluster of personalities wherever you look in the world.

Re: Positive thread only:Which nationalities do you find the easiest to communicate w

This is such a great thread!


Scottish (very cheerful and incredibly friendly), Australians and Americans (cheerful, friendly, have good sense of humor and very easy to communicate with), English (calm, polite and understanding), Italians (we have so much in common! ), Belgians (very honest and straightforward about their views; open & friendly when they feel they can trust you, especially our family friends are amazing people!), Germans (talkative, open and friendly).

Actually, most of the people visiting our country (including those that I did not mention here) are quite friendly, polite and down-to-earth. Each has different ways of communication and that kind of variety makes all nationalities so interesting. I never had any communication problem with any of them and it is always so much fun and joy to have them here!

Precious and fragile things
Need special handling...

I pray you learn to trust
Have faith in both of us
And keep room in your hearts for two

At this point in the thread, there is absolutely no way to continue a 100% positivity.

I feel bad but one of the reasons some find outsourcing in America bad is that Indians to us represent the worse in outsourcing of customer service.
I've hung up on a customer service phone call, just because I can't communicate with them.

Now when you get pass the heavy accent at times, it is true that Indians are very understanding and easy to communicate with but generally there can be some issues.

Have you ever heard an American trying to speak an Indian dialect ? Trust me, it's no easier to understand than an Indian speaking English.

I'd ask you to be more specific in what 'general' issues you think Indians have that other nationalities don't but we'd go off topic.

I'm sure it's just as hard if not harder to understand Americans which is why I tried to be specific on where I was coming from.
Also I have no issues with any commuication issues from Indians besides what I just brought up.

Fair enough. I tend to agree that if you're going to take calls in a particular language you need to be able to speak it clear enough that people will understand you otherwise it's counter productive.

Awww. I think there's another reason you responded to my post.

That is so cute and I thought chivalry was dead.
Defending Rocketta's name like that when she can do it on her own but still wanting to do it.

You really really like her. Oh that's cute.
That's really adorable.
I'll give you props for that.
