I don't know about European crossovers... perhaps someone with more technical skillset can tell you.

But to learn crossovers the easiest, you need to learn to balance on one skate on the outside and inside edges while turning, bend your knees correctly and leave the other leg in a stable position. The easiest to start should be the inside edge C-cut (ie right leg inside edge turning left, and vice-versa). The opposite leg should be just off the ice with you inside ankle slightly touching the heel of your "skating" skate.
