🔹Healthcare is free for all residents.
🔹We are alot more reserved than Americans overall.
🔹Women are allowed 52 weeks of maternity leave with pay.
🔹JUMPING A QUEUE/LINE WILL NOT BE TOLERATED! Expect to be shouted at or physically moved to the back, I'm not joking it's our one absolute no no.
🔹Someone who lives a 30 minute drive away will have a totally different accent/dialect.
🔹 You okay? Or are you okay? = how are you?
🔹"Hammered, sloshed, plastered,trollied, legless" all mean drunk 🤣
🔹 Our weather is chaotic one minute it can be glorious sunshine then the next its heavy heavy rain.
🔹 We have alot of national parks like the lake district and peake District I'd highly recommend visiting them.
🔹 We have museums in nearly all cities, we have a lot of history as it's a very old country.
🔹 Homes tend to be smaller than American homes because it is better for cost and let's us save more of the landscape.

    I didn’t know (you okay?) is used in that way. How can I say when I want to check someone alright?

    @lghxyt You can use the phrase to ask if they are okay in that way too, it's just often said here more as a how are you which confuses people.

    @leilei Things will get better in time I like to think, we are very far from perfect and have many flawed systems here. It's good to be aware of all the pros and cons to keep a balanced perspective.

    @Una Yes it's impossible to give an exact number on how many accents there are within Britain. There are some accents here that are so strong that even though they are speaking English we can't understand what they are saying. 🤣🤣

    @Bunny I got your point! Some province in China, the north part and the south part can’t understand each other although they both speak Chinese 😂😂😂
