Simple situations show us how differently we can express an idea in each language. Look at this scene from Forrest Gump. How do the kids show that they don't want Forrest sitting next to them?

The situation repeats itself years later. What does the other recruit say to Forrest as he goes to sit down?

How would you say that in other languages? Probably it would be very different.
