Differences Between Spain and the U.S.A.

Compliments, requests and feedback between cultures

Posted on

Traveling abroad is always an enlightening and eye opening experience. New foods, new sights and new people! But is everything always as expected in cross cultural interactions? ¡Vamos a ver!

*Making requests in Spain*

On the verge of rudeness

Straight to the point

*Making Requests in the U.S.*

'Please' and 'thank you' are a must

Pretty please with sugar on top!

Saying sorry has so many meanings

*Giving compliments in Spain*

Excessive to the point of being meaningless

*Giving compliments in the U.S.*

Less is more

Good job...How old am I?

*Receiving feedback in Spain*

Almost non-existent

So...are you telling me everything?

Say it to my face!

*Receiving feedback in the U.S.*

Whether asked for or not there is always feedback

To be honest....Just to let you know...
