So, what do you wanna know about England?

Post by MusicWritingLove on 5/19/2010, 3:18 pm

Yeah, I kept being asked about it, so I thought I'd make a thread instead of spamming up the forum. Razz So, um, yeah, I'll cover the basics:

What are your accents like?
I have a clear accent, even for England. It's not like on of those Austin Powers tea and crumpets ones, but it's pretty clear. I might record it and upload it to Photobucket or something, haha. Razz

Weather?
Pretty wet. It's been quite dry recently but in the north of the country there was major flooding. We have quite a mild climate to be honest. Razz

London
This is the big one. XD I've been to London about...eh, I dunno, six or seven times, but I can only remember about three. I'm going to London this summer and I'm really happy: I love the free museums, the Tube (the subway, except we call it the Tube), the way it's so busy. I hope to live there one day.
I've been on the London Eye, and it was brilliant. You could right over the River Thames and into Westminster. I've also seen the Lion King live and I'm going to London AGAIN in October to see Legally Blonde. Haha.

So...questions? :3

Is school fun? xD
A teacher I had once said the schools were incredibly difficult compared to North American ones. Is that true? (I can certainly believe it. Many North Americans are ninnies.)

That's so cool that you're from England!! grin Some of my family came from there, and I REALLY want to go to visit, or maybe even for university.

Do you like the Harry Potter books? If so, have you ever visited any of the tourist sites, like the Great Hall?

What do you think of people from Canada and the United States? And do you think our accents are strange? (Don't worry, I'm sure none of us will be offended if you find Americans very odd. Very Happy)

We Americans absolutely love imitating British accents (and sometimes they're quite inaccurate. >_>), and I've heard a rumor that a similar thing happened over yonder seas... except that the English imitated our accents. Is this true?

Do you like it there?
I've never lived anywhere else, so yeah... but I do prefer warmer countries. XD

Do you live there or are you from there....or what? xD
I was born in England and I've never lived anywhere else. Razz

Are you from England?
Uh-huh. ^^

Do you watch Doctor Who on BBC One? xD
Doctor Who is freaking amazing. <3 I lovelovelove David Tennant, but Matt Smith is okay. :3

Is school fun? xD
Yeah, it is. Razz At the age of sixteen we do exams that are equal to the ones that you do at eighteen or something, and we only need about one A-Level (18 yr old exams) to be able to get into one of your colleges or universities. Razz Over here you need at least four to get into a good college. And then at the age of 21 you can start a PhD, which I'd love to do. Very Happy

Do you like the Harry Potter books? If so, have you ever visited any of the tourist sites, like the Great Hall?
Harry Potter is awesome! Very Happy I've been on the Hogwarts Express, but that's all...

What do you think of people from Canada and the United States? And do you think our accents are strange?
I have a couple of really close friends I met via the internet in Australia...XD Yeah, you guys aren't that odd. XD

We Americans absolutely love imitating British accents (and sometimes they're quite inaccurate. >_>), and I've heard a rumor that a similar thing happened over yonder seas... except that the English imitated our accents. Is this true?
When taking the mickey outta people, yes, we will use an American voice. Razz I mean, we don't love it, but Americanism has helped people develop an extremely good American accent. Razz I'm best at Australian though. XDD

YESYESYES. Very Happy David is THE BEST Doctor. xD And Rose is my favorite companion. Amy would be close, though, if she hadn't tried to kiss the Doctor. Razz

I don't think that episode is actually out in North America yet... xD I cheat and watch them online as soon as they come out on BBC.

Do you watch Torchwood too? Very Happy

I wouldn't say gorgeous, just green.
Yeah, it's really pretty. Like Virginia according to my mum. XD In spring it's very purple and light green, and then in summer I love it. It's so warm. XD

I've been to Scotland a lot - my grandparents live there. Never been to Ireland though.

And the Hogwarts Express was awesome. XD It was just...awesome.
