Have you ever used Skype? Skype is a free software that connects people to people all over the world instantly.
Using Skype is so easy.
1. Get a headset and maybe a camera if your PC doesn’t have one.
2. Download the software from Skype website and install it in your PC.
3. Get your Skype ID. (you just need your email address to get an ID)
4. Sign in and add other’s Skype ID to your contact list.
Now you can make a video call with those who are using Skype all over the world for FREE!You don’t have to worry about being charged expensive international phone bills.What a great tool for a long-distance relationship!
Email is a very convenient tool too to get in touch with people around the world.
You don’t have to worry about time difference.You can just send it whenever you want to.On the other hand, I believe that there are many people who have experienced the risk of causing misunderstandings when they use emails.
I guess one of the biggest reasons is that you cannot hear the tone of the voice through emails.Sometimes it’s hard to tell if the message is serious or just a joke when it’s written, while it gets easier to tell when it’s spoken.The voice tone can add more information to the words.
And so does the facial expression!
With the voice tone, facial expression and gestures, communication becomes much smoother and easier. That’s why I recommend Skype!
There might be a chance that you misinterpret the lines especially when they are written in your second language or your partner is using his/her second language.
Or the reverse might happen too.
Your message might be misinterpreted.
When you get a feeling that you don’t understand the message correctly, please don’t let it as it is. Maybe it is just a small misunderstanding at first.
But many drops make a flood!
Please take time to solve the problem with your partner.It’s good to learn why these misunderstandings happen and how to solve them because sometimes these misunderstandings simply come from cultural differences.
You should know how to deal with them if you’re willing to get married to someone who has a different cultural background.
If you use email to ask what the true intention of the message is, you need to wait for a while to get the answer.
The longer it takes, the more anxious you get.
If you have already spent some time exchanging emails with your partner, why not try Skype?You can get the answer right away!Or maybe you will find that just seeing each other’s smiling face is enough to solve the problem!? :)
