Description

Meet the English is a light-hearted look at some of the history, customs, traditions, people, and places that help make England England, and the English so very … well, English!  It will help visitors to begin to appreciate, if not fully understand, this unique country and its people.  Each page of the book features a section entitled ‘Metaphorically Speaking’ – a testimony to the English love of metaphors, which can often cause confusion if English is not your native language. These sections explore some of the many unusual metaphors a visitor might hear, and offer helpful advice on when to use them.  Featuring humorous illustrations throughout, this is a hilarious and informative read for all nationalities.
