"In Turkish, we tend to be more descriptive. German is more direct and people are quicker with criticism. In Turkish we try to formulate things more politely. For example: if you come from a Turkish background, it’s terribly hard to refuse a gift. More often than not, you would praise the giver and tell them how much you like it."
