Two Nations, One Language, Zero Unanimity

The funny thing about being a U.S. student in London is the personal discovery that the U.S. and U.K. are, in fact, two nations divided by a common language.

3 blunders to watch out for:

1. Pants. If you spill on your trousers, don’t announce that your pants are wet.

2. Suspenders. What holds up your tights, not your trousers.

3. “You okay?” Don’t have an existential crisis- it’s just British for “How are you?”
