Things to avoid saying in England?
I leave to England tomorrow, is there anything I should avoid saying that can come across as offensive there? For example, I told my British friend I was walking around outside in just pants and a shirt. For her, that sounded wrong.
Nearly anything you say there can and will be taken wrong. My sister in-law lived there a year on her job and really could not believe the rudeness of the English people.
dude its the same thing as if it were here. we both speak the same language so whatever you wouldnt say here dont say there. But if u wanna make them mad ask them who won the revolutionary war
Just don't say bad things about the country and its citizens. Just respect who they are.
Here in England we speak exactly the same just different a accent like you do anywhere even in the same country, and just like anywhere you will get nice people and rude people so it's not everyone who is rude.
Hope this helps, Visit my profile if you would like to see a variety of Hubs .

Dont go on about how much bigger and better everything is in America like I heard someone from Texas do in London.( or complain about the weather-food etc or talk really loud everywhere)
Visit to enjoy a place that is diferent and have a great time !
I wish I´d caught this one in time. Hopefully TylerCapp doesn't go around shouting about his fanny pack as that will raise a chuckle for sure. Delicately I´ll explain now that the word fanny is used for female parts, and best avoided in Britain! And I really wouldn't agree that English people are rude.
Things not to say when visiting Great Britain:
"There's no U in 'color!'"
Or anything else that basically says that the UK is 'doing it wrong.'
"Gimme a Budweiser."
Seriously, you're going to the UK and you're not going to try the local favorite beers?
"I vill note buy thees recorrrd; eet eez scratched."
Quoting Monty Python will mark you as not only American, but also a hopeless nerd.
Ditto, but substitute Harry Potter.
You're not British, and no Briton is going to believe that you are, no matter how 'good' your friends back home think your English accent is.
"What do you mean, you want a f*g?" rhymes with rag.
Oh, bloody hell. They want this longer.
