Lost in Translation

Hi all,

Have you been to a country and you don’t know what the other person is joking about? Most people usually smile and nod, hoping the other person doesn’t catch on how confused they are about the statement. 

This is one of the best and frustrating things when conversing with someone of a different culture in or out of your country. I truly believe understanding sarcasm in a foreign tongue is a talent. 

Any thoughts?
