    S01|EP08 - Interview with Robert Maisel about language

    S01|EP08 - Interview with Robert Maisel about language

    Robert Maisel speaks 5 languages: English, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese and Mandarin Chinese.
    While Spanish is the only foreign language he learned from textbooks, he had to realise that he could not communicate with Argentina natives at first.
    He figured that learning through interaction with the actual society speaking the language is much more effective for him. So he learned the other foreign languages Portugese, Japanese and Mandarin Chinese mainly by this technique.
    His core motivation for learning languages is curiosity, passion and to be able to communicate, have an impact and to be impacted by other people. While it's essential to have a strong intrinsic motivation, external benefits such as more professional and personal opportunities and new relationships can be a motivation as well.
    Robert tips for language learners is: Think about your motivation thoroughly. And then: Go out and do it! Learn in whatever is the most effective way for you and don’t be afraid to make mistakes.
    You’ll learn in this Episode:
    👉 why he chose those 5 languages to learn
    👉 how he stayed motivated to learn the languages even in the face of adversity
    👉 what aspect makes Portuguese and Spanish language more different than you think
    👉 what Japanese and Spanish language surprisingly have in common
    👉 what your focus needs to be if you want to be understood in Mandarin Chinese

    S01|EP07 - Interview with Robert Maisel about culture

    S01|EP07 - Interview with Robert Maisel about culture

    Robert is an American cross-cultural consultant, global mobility specialist, travel coach and blogger, speaking 5 different languages. He’s been to 6 continents, 32 US States and 50 countries.
    He grew up in New York where there wasn’t much cultural diversity. When he and his family moved to Michigan he got to know so many new cultures, religions and lifestyles. While he didn’t travel much during childhood, his interest was triggered to travel more - not so much for tourist activities but to dive deep into the local cultures.
    Going to Argentina for his studies was very challenging as he never stayed long in a place away from home. As he became comfortable not being comfortable, he decided to go to Japan after his studies for an internship. He liked the country so much that he decided to work there for a couple of years.
    What fascinated him were the huge differences in values, beliefs and business practice of the Japanese culture in comparison to the USA. For example Japanese people value relationships and trust the highest which leads to long decision-making. Both sides need to understand the other cultures process, values, beliefs to find a common ground.
    You’ll learn in this Episode:
    👉  Why Robert is so excited about “afternoon tea” tradition in Argentina where he studied
    👉  Why he is fascinated the most about Japan even though he, at first, understood the least about this culture
    👉  How his favourite quote “live true to your values, the rest will follow” has proven to be true

    S01|EP06 - Interview with Alexandra Paucescu

    S01|EP06 - Interview with Alexandra Paucescu

    Alexandra is a diplomatic spouse from Romania currently living in Berlin. She lived in 4 countries, has a master in business and participated in a certified program called “cultural diplomacy and intercultural communication”.
    Spending high school time in the US, she experienced a quite severe cultural shock. Luckily she integrated easily, also due to her open-mindedness, and made friendships that still last.
    After high school in the US she studied and worked in Romania before marrying her husband and moved to Vienna with him. As Vienna is quite close to Bucharest and they already had a few relationships there, the transition was quite easy.
    However, when they moved to Berlin, they were disappointed by the people being more distant and the city being more dirty than in Vienna. This was when Alexandra put the theories from her cultural studies in practice: She used her knowledge not only to understand the other culture but to take the best of the values, beliefs and behaviours from everybody. If you're open-minded, friendly and don’t compare people and places you’ll find the beauty of everything if you take the time.
    You’ll learn in this Episode:
    👉 how Alexandra grew up in Romania and spend high school years in the USA
    👉 why the cultural transitions from Vienna (Austria) to Berlin (Germany) was quite hard
    👉 why the integration in Louisiana (USA) was a lot easier than in Berlin
    👉 how your level of expectations determine your experiences in a new location
    👉 why an open mind is key when moving to another country
