3) Entering into a conversation, the topic of weather comes up. How do you feel?

c) Confused! There is no need to discuss weather in the UK as it is always the same… raining.

4) The only news in the UK this May was Royals and the new royal baby. Even anti-monarchists couldn’t resist saying how good the Duchess of Cambridge looked after giving birth! What is the name of the new Royal princess?

c) People go hunting foxes on horseback

6) You hear the statement: ‘England are going to win the next football world cup’. How does this make you feel?

a) A bit depressed. It’s not really very likely is it; we haven’t won since 1966 – 50 years of hurt.

b) Let those Lions roar. Never underestimate their potential. Don’t forget how we gloriously won against the German team in ’66!

c) I hear it’s the Winter Olympics this year!

7) It sometimes seems the UK class system still exists. How can a Brit tell if somebody belongs to the English upper class?

8) You go to a hairdresser and they don’t style your hair how you wanted (or how the picture you took in looked). What do you do?

a) Immediately express your disappointment with the service and ask to speak to a manager.

b) Nod your head in approval, describe it as ‘interesting’, then leave and go to a different hairdresser.

c) Enjoy it. Sometimes the customer isn’t always right and this time proves it.

How British are you?

Mostly A’s:  You aren’t very British, are you! Get yourself a ticket to the UK to find out some more insights as quickly as possible.

Mostly B’s: Absolutely spiffing! Well done my dear Sir/Madam.  Come round to mine on Sunday and we’ll have roast beef, spuds and Yorkshire pudding.  You are brilliantly British.

Mostly C’s: You are clearly doing the wrong quiz. Make yourself a black tea with lemon and reflect on how truly Polish you are.
