The English weather:

If you come from a country where the weather does the

same thing at the same time every year. TheEnglish weather will give you some surprises.The worst thing about the English weather is its way of changing suddenly.When you

go out in the morning it may be warm and bright and there may not be a cloud in the sky,but by sundown it may have become cold and wet.ln England you see the sun only a third of the time it is in the sky.All the rest of the time its face is covered by mist or clouds.

The English cooking:

Cooking is not the strong point of the English people, so if you are a lover of good food,you will not have a high opinion of the English meals.The reason for the

awful taste is that they cook generally in an uninteresting way and they often cover their food with a thick brown dressing or a disgusting sticky white paste,which takes away its delicate taste.

The English pub:

The average pub is divided into a Public Bar,where people drink their beer standing at the bar or sitting on rough wooden benches,and a Saloon Bar,where the furniture is more comfortable,people are better dressed,and drinks are slightly more expensive.

Pubs are open only during 'permitted hours' , i. e. in Central London mostly from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and from 5.30 p.m. to 11 p.m.

The English freedom:

The Britons have done everything possible to make theirs

a free country.ln England,everyone is free to put forward his opinions,even opinions which would be a danger to society if your acts were guided by them.The most famous place to speak out your opinion is Speakers-Corner at Hyde Park.

The English country:

The changing quality of the English eountFy is its great attraction.You will get a better knowledge of England
