COMMUNICATION IMPASSE

Ever been in a situation where you are trying to have a conversation with someone but neither of you understands the other? You just reached an impasse. Rather than give up, find new ways to express yourself. You will be surprised how much fun you have!

Gestures

Use a lot of gestures instead of words, like point at yourself and say name, then point at other person. Use drinking motion when thirsty, make a face, roll your eyes, shake your head. If you think it, do it! That way you are at least trying to be understood.

Be Dramatic

If you have to, use a thick accent. If you are in a foreign country use random funny phrases you know from that language so that you can communicate. Use cliche phases. Think ‘Mamma mia! ‘ If per chance you are in France, use thick accents like Inspector Whatshisname in Pink Panther. Reinvent yourself.

Have you seen babies talking on and on even when its clear you don’t understand them? They have the right idea. Think different. You will be surprised. Miscommunication can result in the best conversation you ever had. Or didn’t have .

Storytime with John

Numerous 2010

I am throwing this one in the travel tales section, simply because it is a pretty crazy story that took place on one of my adventures…however, I’m not sure which country to put on the end of it…you see it took place in three airports, rather than the actual countries themselves…

But enough talk, here it is:

So it was back in 2010 that my first real trip took place, sure I had been on family trips to France and Spain during the school holidays – but this was different…I was heading off to the USA, for a whole year…by myself. Now, I wouldn’t blink at this kind of thing, but back then I was absolutely shitting my pants (literally – well almost literally – but that’s err…another…err, listen forget I said anything!), anyway yes, I was nervous. So while I was on my way to…
