Personal comments
The communication culture in Poland was interestingly different from that of Finland. Polish people had more small talk in day-to-day relations than Finnish people, while still being more no-nonsense and down-to-business in business settings. This was an educational paradox that widened my personal perspectives on variations in communication habits between cultures.
