My first impressions of Britain

Today is the fifth day since I came to Britain. Also, I still feel it is hard to get use to many things here. Because this is my first time I left my motherland to another country. Life here is totally different from China. But I have seen some good things here.

Before my plane landed, I overlooked Britain through the window, maybe it's not very clear, but I saw a prim field and uptown. And at that time I have believed that Britain is a clean and orderly country. And after I went to University of Warwick I found this kind of believe is true. For example, my shoes still very clean after one day's walk, and I even found some of the student wearing no shoes, and walking in the street. Of course that is not because they don't have shoes to wear. This is can be a impression of Britain.

Another thing is that people in Britain are very polite. This is the impression of Britain. When we students walking in the street and want to cross the road, the drivers stop their cars to let the pedestrian go first. It is really surprised me. If this happened in China the diver won't do the same thing. And sometimes they will shout to the pedestrian to look out. In my flat I often heard they said sorry to me, but they don't do anything sorry to me. Sometime their polite even makes me unease.

All in all, I think Britain has left me very good impressions, Britain is an orderly country and people here are very polite. Although I have problem with my English, so it is hard for me to communicate to the local people, their manner really worth me to learn, and lots of thing worth we Chinese to learn.
