British civilization is a separate world, formed on the basis of the traditions of peoples inhabiting the numerous islands, regions and provinces of the United Kingdom. It is a multicultural state with sovereignty over 14 overseas territories and 3 crown lands.
The lands of the British Isles were won with varying success by the Celts, Normans, Saxons, Vikings and Romans. Ethnic composition is very diverse. Culturally, this diversity can be traced. Therefore, they are very tolerant to any religion and national traditions.
Not clothing colors a person
Our compatriots have long been accustomed to the fact that abroad people on the streets can wear ridiculous or ridiculous clothes and nobody will pay attention to them. In Britain , the issues of the dress code are very democratic: wear comfortable clothes and do not prevent others from enjoying life. Here, perhaps, the basic rules of life in the country. Many are dressed in an indefinite color loose sweatshirts or windbreakers, and in the daytime on the streets it is difficult to meet a miss on high heels. Some even carry an umbrella on sunny days. A strict dress code is provided for employees of large corporations, banks, insurance companies.
Life on campus. Freedom or conclusion?
Many colleges offer first-year students to live on campus to get better, learn about local culture, and become "their own" in the academic community. In an informal setting, residents of the student campus can chat with their teacher, consult with the curator about important issues, get help from fellow students. And we know a lot about the famous friendship in brotherhoods in films ...
But, on the other hand, the whole life of the student is on the campus. There is nothing personal. The elected head of the campus and the curator appointed by the administration are aware of each step of the student, and nocturnal stormy parties will not be left without punishment.
The British are very sensitive to individual space. It is not accepted to kiss and embrace at a meeting not close to people you know, ask about the level of income, take an interest in the social situation. How often they write in classic English novels: the ideal theme when meeting stiff British is weather and nature.
Lady and Sir
The British are extremely proud of the absence of any gender discrimination in personal communication and the professional sphere. Of course, ladies always hold the door at the entrance to the building, but do it more likely because of the general underlined courtesy. In Britain, you can often see how women and men pay in restaurants equally, or husbands "nurse" in children's towns with a baby, while mom is out.
Time is more precious than gold
The Germans and the British are united in the approach to punctuality and accuracy. Late arriving at a business meeting will lower your reputation below nowhere. A late arrival for lunch or dinner will make you feel uncomfortable. No, no one will say anything that condemns aloud, but you can still feel the involuntary chill ... Punctuality is not even a habit here, it's a lifestyle, one of the mandatory rules for all.
The birthplace of football
In Britain, they introduced and recorded the first football rules, many of which are still relevant. A real fan of this game is simply obliged to visit the matches in the UK, to feel the real spirit of violent supporters of football.
Everyone is ill here: men, women, children. No one is surprised by 80-year-old grandmothers in the symbolism of football clubs, jumping with whistles in the stands. Great demand is enjoyed not only by the Premier League matches, supported by the British and local small clubs. Members of school sports clubs increase their chances of receiving scholarships for college orUniversity .
Each college in Britain provides students with the opportunity to take a course in theater skills or enroll in a club of theater lovers. This art is loved here as much as football. Even from the junior school, children can join play in productions or write their own plays in the book club. Love for the theater in Shakespeare's homeland is planted from infancy. In many cities you can find small nonprofessional theaters, in which people of different "non-theatrical" specialties play at the behest of the heart.
