Now find out about Chris's experiences when working abroad.
Overcoming cultural differences
I think the most important thing to overcome these cultural differences is to sit down with the people and talk, and what is very interesting
for me is looking back over these years. If I look back, for example, and check who are my friends in this country, and most of my friends in
this country are not German.
I've only one very good German friend in this country and interestingly when we are together we very often
speak actually English, not German which I think is very surprisingly initially for me.
And I think the more time I spend with people here
outside my working hours, for example, sitting down in the pub, you know having a beer together and just chatting around, I think
this is the best way for me to overcome cultural differences.
