Are you done packing your bags for the UK? It surely is going to be an exciting phase of your life and you are wait for it to get started. The United Kingdom has immense history and you are very lucky to be a part of it. One thing you have to always remember is that if you want to thoroughly enjoy the country, live like a local.
Here are four things you should understand before studying abroad in the UK:
1. English weather
You need to buy clothes for all seasons. You never know what weather is going to be on that particular. Be ready with your raincoat in your backpack and a hat on your head. It rains during winter time as well and it is quite grey. Coats and jacket should definitely be a part of your closet.
2. North and the south
Diving England into half is only what British can tell you correctly. All places from Birmingham and below come in the south of England. Accents are different in the two places. Northern accent is difficult to understand. Don’t be shy to ask the person to repeat what he said, just ask politely.
3. The English summer
This the time you can travel to other places and enjoy the British life. Visit the seaside or go trekking. Don’t forget to try all the seafood and street food. If you are tennis fan, definitely go watch the Wimbledon’s since it takes place during the summers.
4. British humor
British humor can be a little hurtful at times. It is filled with sarcasm and pun. Don’t get offended, just laugh along. The people are good at heart and will never hurt you. While you stay there, learn a few tricks from them and annoy them with your British humor.
