In this wiki about the English-speaking countries, I intend to post information about different aspects of their culture.

I hope you'll find it interesting!

English?


'When people say England, they sometimes mean Great Britain, sometimes the United Kingdom, sometimes the British Isles -but never England.' How to be an Alien, by George Mikes.

People usually say "England" in reference to the whole United Kingdom, the entire island of Great Britain (or simply Britain), or the British Isles. This is not correct but, what's more, it may offend people from other parts of the UK.



People who are English are from the country of England and British are those who live in Great Britain and the UK.



England is one of the three countries in Britain. The other two are Scotland and Wales. For more information: wikipedia
