Guys,
I will be giving a presentation in front of the class. This time is not about Sukarno, but Indonesian Gestures...

Give me reasons please why do we have to be aware of another culture's gestures?

What are the common on Indonesian (Asian) and Netherlands (European) Gestures?

Do we expect other cultures to adopt our customs or are we willing to adopt theirs?

Warm regards,
Desi Clark

You don't need to be aware of other people's gestures if you have nothing to do with them, but don't forget: economics, tourism, migration and all this. Emoticon: Puh!

Desi,

I do not believe in a Hell.

Therefore I am not able to answer why you need to learn Gestures in Hell. Emoticon: Confused

Who knows somebody who just came from Hell and reading this Forum can give you the answer.

Albert Emoticon: Bye bye

As our society has become more diverse, and communication among members of international cultures more frequent. As you travel around the world, this gesture may help you slip out of the prickliest of difficult situations.

For example, curling the index finger is used for beckoning animals in Indonesia, but not in America. Europeans raise the arm, palm facing down, and make a scratching motion with fingers for beckoning a waiter..or someone.

THUMBS UP also used for hitch-hiking in American. In Germany and Japan, the signal for "one:..

Albert & Ali...

I had been to Hell...there I met Hitler, Musolini, Daendles, Kusni Kasdut..well first I was okay,...all gentlemen there (except Kusni Kasdut) taught me their native language...

I picked up some words such as: Guten Tag (from Hitler), Buona Siera (Musolini), Groetjes (Daendles)...but then I got bored so I left before my graduation....

Who sent me to hell? The Government, and the reason is for social study. They were trying to prove if a woman could survive living with 4 men in hell....

Huek huek huek.,....

It is Daendels. He was from Hattem (and a maarschalk) so he would never say "groetjes"! And why is he in hell? He did an awfully good job with his "grote Postweg". We can still enjoy it -partly- today!
It is Mussolini. He would never say "Buona Siera". You remember the lyrics?
Buona sera signorina buona sera
It is time to say goodnight to Napoli
Though it's hard for us to whisper buona sera
With that old moon above the Mediterranean sea
In the morning signorina we'll go walking
Where the mountains help the moon come in to sight
And by the little jewelry shop we'll stop and linger
In the meantime let me tell you that I love you
Buona sera signorina kiss me goodnight
Buona sera signorina kiss me goodnight
Finally our good old Adolph was originally from Austria. He would never say "Gutentag" but more someting like "Gruss Gott" and "Servuss", although he prefered "heil hitler" , but I don't know if he said that himself. I guess he didn't say anything.

If you stay in hell bit longer (YOUR man) George W will say Hi Desi,wazzup??! You'll look together to the lworld and you'l say:"damn George, I thought you had good intentions" And George will say: "Yeah we were both so naive, my advisors made plans for me, I can't think myself but I see what a mess it is now."
And together you'll feel so stupid and you'll think: Martijn was right!

whaahhahaaahah 'Sorry I'm bit in a funny very good mood!! Emoticon: Nice Emoticon: Nice Emoticon: Nice

See no wonder all those men were in hell.. they tend to mislead people! Hitler and the gangs taught me wrong...


As far as Mr. President George W. Bush. The Immigration officer in hell refused his admittancel...due to the fact, that he did not have a sponsor letter, and called the officer Bastard!
Good news, I met with Mr. President yesterday, and we both agreed to send Mr. Kleinsmann to hell instead, but since Mr. Kleinsmann had no history in political issue nor as a leader...therefore....he will not be with Hitler and the Gangs, but will be sent to 2nd class in hell... in blue room.

No Parole!

WHOAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAA... no hard feeling my friend!!!
