What is not recommended to study abroad

What is not recommended to study abroad

Being abroad, our tourists should remember that they do not go to a foreign monastery with their charter. After all, what is calmly and adequately perceived at home, beyond its borders can easily cause a very unpleasant embarrassment. And if our compatriots have already learned to take off their shoes before entering the mosque, then many other rules of conduct (and for each country they are their own) are often learned by them through the experience, which in some cases can lead to big problems. We will talk about this today.


  1. Do not get involved in a general demonstration of your favorite fur or leather products: the militant English "green" are quite capable of destroying the widespread myth of British phlegmaticness.
  2. Foggy Albion not only reveres his Queen, but also numerous queues, which they have not less than ours, so pushing everyone on the way to the counter or the cashier is not accepted here.
  3. The gesture "V" attributed to Winston Churchill (with the only difference that the palm is facing himself) is perceived by the English as a gross insult.
  4. A glass turned upside down can very well lead to a fight.
  5. Smoking in public places can easily turn out to be a major fine for you. By the way, "to shoot" cigarettes in England, too, is not accepted. If absolutely unbearable, "exchange" a cigarette for a few small coins.


  1. When visiting a pub, remember that the beer mug ordered for you necessarily "requires" the reverse courtesy. And if you "zatesyvalis" in the company of local residents, do not forget that the drinks in this case, it is customary to order on a "circular system".
  2. It is not necessary to discuss the sovereignty of the state with the Irish, and even more so to compare them with the British.
  3. You can only tip the waiter. In all other cases (if you do not want to seem like an uncultured rich man), you should not do this.
  4. Even if you are an admirer of Oscar Wilde, ring at the door at WestlandRow, 21 (it is believed that the famous writer was born here) is not necessary. Now in this building there is an educational institution, which has nothing to do with the great aesthetic of the XIX century.
  5. Photographed in the background of sculpture Molly Malloun (the famous debauchee, in a sense, the Irish "colleague" Emmanuel) is the same as naked in the center of Dublin.


  1. The country is "famous" for a lot of prohibitions (and at the legislative level), because at first it is worth to be especially careful.
  2. If you do not have "extra money", it is not recommended to spit out the chewing gum in the streets or in public places. And the absence on the horizon of policemen does not mean that you are safe: it is quite possible that local residents who "adore purity" will "carry on" you.
  3. The same blow to your budget can be smoking and ... (fanfare!) Fishing in public places, and if you really wanted to eat soup, then it's better to look into one of the many restaurants. Believe me, it will cost you much cheaper.
  4. Special caution should be exercised in the local metro, where, among other things, the use of any food and drink is forbidden, transportation of explosive substances and even some fruits (in particular, durian). A desire to take a little nap or ride a skateboard (!) Can be an excellent occasion to get acquainted with the police station (which will please only a few "esthetes").


  1. Here you can easily get on the nuts for the disrespect shown in relation to the Prime Minister or the King. With the domestic cult of personality of the 1930s, of course, not to compare, but the problems will be enough.
  2. Malaysians are very religious, so try not to get carried away with too frank outfits, and this applies to both men and women. And when visiting any temple, always remove your shoes.
  3. If you do not want to spend all your vacation in the hospital under a dropper, do not drink tap water. To spoil your holiday can be much more fun and pleasant ways.
  4. Do not openly take pictures with Buddha statues, which are scattered throughout the country.


  1. It's pointless to sift the sand of local rivers in search of gold. It's not there a long time ago.
  2. It's much easier to meet a kangaroo in a zoo.
  3. To avoid bathing in local rivers because of fear of meeting alligators, you can only if you have a desire to become A target for ridicule of local residents.
  4. If you decide to be tempted by independent surfing without an instructor, you should first write a will: Australian waves are not inclined to submit to amateurs.
  5. It is not recommended to walk barefoot on the grass: snakes in these parts are missing.
  6. Exotic dishes of local cuisine are rarely when normally perceived by European stomachs.
  7. The times when Australia was " "For" zeks "from all corners of the British Empire, long gone into oblivion. Therefore, in every local resident to see a rapist or serial killer is not necessary.
