Saying Hello: The Anglo-Saxon Way [episode in English with a small segment in German]
Play • 1 hr 15 min

The topic of this episode is saying hello in English and in German. Dr. J speaks to three expats in Hamburg, Germany - Ben Feddersen from the US, Orla Mac Mahon from Ireland and Peter Witchalls from England – as well as to an international group of university students, producer Sarah and a retired Hamburg firefighter. The focus is not the words and vocabulary used in greeting somebody, but the intricate social and psychological aspects of starting up a conversation, whether you do so in your mother tongue or in a foreign language or culture.

Languages spoken in this episode: English. There is one brief interview at the end in German.
