  1. I really did enjoy this video. It gave me some insight into what to do when you’re traveling through and Jean or anywhere else for that matter. I know given that I live in the US I’m always aware of my surroundings whether I’m in my hometown or I’m going as far as Los Angeles for which I lived in California for three years and school 13 years ago. I always feel that you have to be cautious where you’re going and be aware of what’s around you because you just don’t now. I’ve never been months personally but I know people that have been disabled and non-disabled. And it is a scary sight when you’re not in control of your surroundings and what’s going on around you. However I love to travel I think the most interesting experience I ever had was when I went to Toronto Canada for my senior trip 20 years ago when I was in high school and I was trying to use my key card to get back into my hotel room and because I couldn’t see the little light to let me know that the door was open. I had to use my broken French to communicate with a French man who helped me get back into my room that was the most interesting experience I had as a traveler today. But I was able to use my broken French in order to communicate in the person understood me. Which was a good thing for me at the time.

  2. Hong Kong, at least, is safe to the point of boredom. It's probably the number one cause of death. In Thailand I was "attacked" by a kid with a water gun and I blessed him for the assault. The most dangerous moment was in China, traveling with a taxi driver with a driving license from a pack of noodles. But overall, I feel very safe.

  3. Intrusive interruptions

    Disagreement: jumps in to voice a different opinion.

    Floor taking: takes over the conversation, but stays on the same subject.

    Topic change: cuts in to change the subject.

    Summarisation: paraphrases the speaker’s point, often minimising it.

    Cooperative interruptions

    Agreement: shows support or elaborates on the speaker’s idea.

    Assistance: provides a word or phrase the speaker was searching for.

    Clarification: asks for an explanation of something just said.
