Life in England
• British people have sometimes been stereotyped as being cold or reserved.
• Most people will greet each other by shaking hands the first time they meet (especially men), but you may also see friends hugging one another (usually women).
• Queuing is very important to British people
• British people tend to use a lot of polite words - 'please', 'thank you', 'sorry' and 'excuse me'. People sometimes apologise even when something is not their fault!
• The British sense of humour can be very confusing - sarcasm is often used, as well as surreal/dark humour.
• Eye contact is seen as being sincere rather than impolite and if you look away a lot in a conversation, people may consider it rude as if you are not really listening or not telling the truth.
• Nodding the head means 'yes' and shaking the head means 'no'.
• British people will often hold a door open for one another - in old fashioned terms a 'gentleman' is supposed to hold a door open for a woman.
• Extreme physical closeness in a conversation may make British people feel uncomfortable.
• It is not usual for British people to be totally direct with someone e.g. in making a critical comment or refusing a request, as they do not like to offend or upset others. In the same way it is not usual to ask direct questions, e.g. how much someone earns, or how much someone weighs.
• When eating, it is generally considered impolite to make loud noises while you eat.
Food and Drink
Most people think of 'fish and chips' or an 'English breakfast' when they think of British Food - However, these are not common daily meals because both are high in fat. However Devon is full of home made products and traditional English restaurants, so while your here.. TRY IT!!
Lesser known British food includes a variety of pies including, stews, chops and steaks served with potatoes and vegetables and roast dinners. Quick snacks bought for lunch are usually a sandwich, soup or jacket potato. There is also a large variety of traditional cakes and desserts or 'puddings' and many different kinds of British cheeses. Devon is famous for its Cream Tea's, Ice Cream, Fudge, Pasties and Cider. I recommend you all try as much British food as possible while you are here!!!
Give it a TRY!!!!
Drinking culture is well-established in Britain and might seem very different to mainland Europe and what you are used to.
However, do not think it is compulsory, if you do not want to drink alcohol, it is very acceptable to buy soft drinks such as coca cola, orange juice and coffee.
- STAY SAFE -
The weather in the UK is often a topic of conversation because it is so changeable. Do not be surprised if you go out on a sunny day, to find that it suddenly begins to rain! The weather is generally mild to cool and it is rare that there are any extremes of temperature - Cloudy and rainy weather is fairly common in all seasons.
• A study has found that for more than half of British conversations turn to our climate at least once every six hours.
• A quarter of us deem the topic of such interest that we use it as an icebreaker.
• Our obsession with the weather runs so deep that almost 70 per cent of British people check the weather forecast at least once a day.
So if you are ever short of conversation with a British person mention the weather …and buy an umbrella ;).
