Attitude and Etiquette of the Local People

The most important British etiquette is to be aware of the distinct nations that form the United Kingdom. The citizens are British, and while they share many customs, each country has its own set of history and traditions. The rise of multiculturalism, changing economy, social and gender-specific equality laws have played a role in Britain moving from a rigid class system to a more informal attitude to social etiquette. Britain has seen a shift from the household setting to more corporate business etiquette, becoming a set of written and unwritten rules of conduct to make social interactions with co-workers and international colleagues run more smoothly.


92% of UK residents speak English (or Welsh in Wales) while the remaining having a different language native to their country. Polish topped the list of "other" languages spoken.
