Conversing Europeans / Conversation manual

Conversing Europeans
Conversing Europeans

The European Union currently consists of 27 member states whose cultures show a great variety. Their cultural backgrounds influence the conversational behaviour of Europeans from different EU countries whereby wide conversation differences appear.
For the advancement of intercultural dialogue and understanding, “Conversing with Europeans- A basic manual” provides help for correct forms of conversation. With descriptive and internationally understandable illustrations, this manual includes the most important behavioural guidelines, peculiarities and taboos, that should necessarily be considered for a successful conversation with Europeans.
