My impressions of Britain

This is the first time I come to Britain and I have been here for nearly two months. During the time of pre-sessional course, I go to London, Oxford, Warwick castle and Stratford which are good places of interest. All views attract me because of theirs history background, excellent building styles or various culture. Moreover, I also get a general idea of British customs, and then I introduce some differences on humanity, environment and mechanization.

As is known to all, British people are famous for its humanity. And indeed, they are more gentlemanly than I thought about. When I meet a strange person I does not know, he always makes a smile and say ¡°hello¡± to me. That makes me happy. In addition, when I come cross some troubles, the native people try their best to help me. Generally speaking, most British people are kind-hearted and well educated.

To my surprise, the city planning is extremely different. As the international big cities, Beijing and Shanghai have a great number of skyscrapers, wide roads and cloverleaf junctions. By contrast, there are seldom tall buildings lie in the big cities and a large number of narrow roads cross together. In china, most people choose bicycles as their main vehicles while in Britain most of them choose bus, taxi, underground and private cars. To British people, bicycle is only a sport.

British have a higher level of mechanization and they control all kinds of machines to do different work on agriculture or project. That¡¯s more efficiency than manpower. China has a large population which lead to a great press for the mechanization. If machines are widely used, most of the Chinese people lose their jobs.

In conclusion, different countries have different cultures. England is a developed country, while china is a developing country. Though we all live on the same planet, England and China are extremely different. It is necessary to adopt the new atmosphere so that the international students can enjoy a happier life.
