In New Zealand, it is possible to disagree with a manager as long as this is done in a very indirect way. Some migrants struggle to express disagreement in a suitably polite way. Ben and Hans are discussing some differences regarding one of the teams working in the orchards. Hans is a new migrant.
How do you think Hans should have expressed his disagreement?
Hans should not have disagreed so directly. In fact, Hans should not have expressed his disagreement at all.
Hans disagrees with Ben so it is appropriate to just say so.
Hans disagrees with Ben but he should say this more politely and add the reasons why he disagrees in order to soften what he has said.
