How to be British?

 1 True Brit

How do you do? Pleased to meet you. If you are a visitor to our country, I expect by now you have realized why we call it Great Britain: our long and glorious history; the unspoilt beauty of our landscape; the rich variety of our weather, not to mention our unrivalled achievements in cricket and football. Then there are our cherished traditions: afternoon tea at four, roast beef on Sunday, and warm beer until 11pm. And there’s us, with our old-world courtesy and tolerance. Oh, and our sense of humour. I mustn’t forget that. We do like a good laugh!

As for me, well, I’m so many feet and inches tall, and I weigh so many stones, pounds and ounces. My petrol comes in gallons and my milk in pints - from a milkman. I pay for them, of course, in pounds sterling. My home is my castle and I ‘Do-it-Myself’. I only hope I live to pay off the mortgage on it. My garden is my recreation and a sanctuary to many endangered species, not least of all myself!

Expressions to learn
Well done! You deserved to win.

Avoid saying
What is that in metres/kilos/litres?

 2 Arrival

You can see the visitors arriving at British airports, their wide eyes and flushed faces expressing the mingled wonder and apprehension they feel. They’ve made it! They’re actually here, in this fairy tale land of knights and wizards, princes and pop idols, the birthplace of the industrial revolution, computers, human rights, pork scratchings, evolution, lawn tennis, parliament and punk. Some of the new arrivals look a bit disorientated and confused, which is only natural as everything here is so different and, well, so much better! But life here can take a bit of getting used to: driving on the left, being ruled by a Queen, pouring gravy or custard over everything and of course getting around in English the whole time! One thing the visitor soon discovers: although Brits come in many different shapes and sizes we are united by one very important characteristic: we are all waiting for the weather to ‘buck up’.

Expressions to learn
Hello. You must be Big Ben. I’ve heard a lot about you.

Avoid saying
Tell me — why do you have a royal family?

 3 The Telephone Box

Before mobile phones made everything so easy, the public telephone box was an important focus for community life. People of all types and classes would form an orderly queue outside its red iron door, clutching their pennies and waiting patiently for their turn to be linked up to the great wide world. For a shy people like the British it was an opportunity to meet and exchange news and gossip with neighbours and to get some fresh air. And what’s more, once you were inside that box everything you said was private. Everybody uses mobiles nowadays, but talking loudly in public places with unseen faces, about personal feelings or secret dealings...well it’s not something our Brit feels comfortable about! Now there’s a new generation of phone boxes which can link you up to the Internet, receive e-mails, take payment by phone card or credit card. Impressive, perhaps, but where is the romance?

Expressions to learn
Just popping out to the phone box — I’ll be back tomorrow night.

Avoid saying
It’s me. I’m on the train.

 4 Dress Sense

A city street in mainland Britain. It’s 11.15pm on a cold Friday night in the dead of winter. Two young women in crop tops showing their bare waists and shoulders, and mini skirts with no tights underneath, are strolling along arm in arm. “’Elio, darling!” they shout, “where you from then?” And they run off down the road screaming with laughter. “Good heavens!” wonders the visitor, “aren’t they cold?” This is an example of our famous British toughness. On the other hand, in summer the same visitor may observe Brits sitting on the beach wearing jackets and pullovers with long woollen socks under their sandals. The important thing to remember is that the British dress to please themselves and to show their independence of fashion, weather, social convention and colour theory. For many foreigners visiting Britain it’s a welcome change to be able to dress without having to worry if their clothes are the wrong size, or don’t match, or are torn, or inside out, or show off their fat legs.

Expressions to learn
There’s no need to dress up.
Oh, it’s just an old thing I dug out.

Avoid saying
Orange and purple don’t go.
Skirt? What skirt?

 5 Tea

In most countries tea is a very disappointing experience: a teabag dropped into a glass of hot water with the string still attached. In Britain, by contrast, tea is not only a wonderful drink, but also a light but substantial meal of sandwiches, biscuits and cake, and an important ceremony of our national life.

It was of course the British who discovered the pleasant and restorative effects of this famous infusion. One day a gentleman called Earl Grey was walking with a friend through India when suddenly, in the middle distance, he noticed a small and undistinguished-looking shrub covered with greenish leaves. The sun was hot and both men were feeling very thirsty. In a moment of visionary inspiration, Earl Grey turned to his companion: “I say, Carstairs - do you see that undistinguished-looking bush or shrub over there? Now that would make a nice cup of tea!”

Thus was born the East India Tea Company and the habit of drinking this refreshing beverage in small porcelain cups, which has since spread throughout the world.

Expressions to learn
I’m gasping for a cuppa!
One lump or two?

Avoid saying:
Actually, I’d prefer coffee.
