Dear Boris,

Thanks for your nice letter.

You asked me how I was getting on with my English. Well, after I had spent a week with my English family, I slowly began to understand their English a little better. It’s very different from what I learned at school! Student’s in my group are from different cities of Britain and their dialects are different too! Some of their accents are quite strong and they also have their own words and expressions. I noticed that they love to talk about languages and especially about the different accents in different parts of Britain.

But it’s not only the language that’s different and surprising. Before I came to England I had thought that fish and chips were what most Englishmen ate every day. That’s quite wrong!

I had expected to see «London fog». Do you remember our texts about it? We had no idea that most of this «thick fog» disappeared many years ago when people stopped using coal in their homes. But the advice to speak about the weather was very helpful. The weather in London is changeable indeed. Besides, people like talking about it.

On the other hand there are habits which are different. People tell me that what is typically British here in London is not always typical in Wales or Scotland. Local habits and traditions vary a lot here – very different from what we know in Russia.

But what is common for all the countries of Britain is that they follow traditions. Probably Britain has more living symbols of its past than many other countries. The royal family is something out of a fairy tale. The capitals, big cities and countryside boast many ancient buildings, castles and cathedrals. Every year there are historical ceremonies, for example, the State Opening of Parliament, the Lord Mayor’s Show or the meeting of the Knights of the Garter at Windsor each St. George’s Day. These events are a true representation of the past.

I will tell you more about Britain in my other letters.

Love from Britain,

Pete

1 Travel agencies started long ago. Thomas Cook was one of the first travel agents. He started to organize excursions by train in the middle of the last century. Later on, he also organized excursions from England to European continent. In 1890 he began to sell travel tickets to places in England.

2 Today, travel agents offer all kinds of holidays to all types of people, as nearly everybody can afford some sort of holidays. Travel agents think that their customers (клиенты) consist of certain types of people. For each type, they try to offer the «right» kind of holiday, at the «right» price in the «right» country. All this has to be planned very carefully. So, while most people are still busy buying Christmas presents, the travel agents have already decided where their customers will be going next summer, what kind of things they will be doing there and how much money they will be spending on their holidays.

3 Sometimes the agents are right (people will be doing exactly what the travel agents have planned for them) but sometimes they are wrong. All this makes their business rather risky, because if they make mistakes, they can lose a lot of money.

4 In spite of the many advantages which travel agents can offer, there are still quite a few people who «go it alone», choosing their own destination and booking their tickets and accommodation themselves.
