Reading in between the lines of what Londoners are saying is for our My LONDON program travelers and other verbalists studying in London just as important as understanding the words themselves. To better prepare you for our language travel to London, we bring you the complete and amazing guide to ‘British-isms’ 🙂
The most important tip for our students in London is queuing. British people would love to stand in a queuing and wait for their turn. So, next summer, while we explore London you should follow the rule of queuing strictly.
The second important tip is punctuality. Brits strictly follow the rule of punctuality. If we are going to meet British people then we should be very punctual.
Another important tip for verbalists in London is the reserved greetings. In London, men and women greet people with a simple handshake. Don’t expect that people welcome you with a kiss.
We also need to keep in mind that British people always use please, thank you and sorry in their conversation. In other words, these words are very common in English language and can never be overused.
There’s no place like London. It is probably the greatest city on Earth; however, there are simply too many things to do and see in London to approach it without a proper guide. That’s why we created the My LONDON program with our long term partner and one of the best language schools in the UK, St. Giles. A Verbalists’ guide has been taking the language network’s students on unforgettable journeys through London for seven years now, making sure they make the most out of their language trip.
