The English are often said to be a very reserved nation. They're famous for their politeness and self-discipline or "stiff upper lip".

They're also well known for their strong sense of humour that can be hard for foreigners to understand sometimes. Britain has produced some world class comedians over the years. Some of the greats include: Spike Milligan, John Clease, Paul Whitehouse, Harry Enfield...the list goes on.

English people are very fond of nicknames. Don't be offended if you're called any of the following: love, chick, chuck, me duck, me duckie, mate, guv, son or ma'am. They're all terms of endearment!

London is famous for it's rhyming slang. Originally, Cockney Rhyming slang was a coded language invented in the nineteenth century by locals so they could speak in front of the police without being understood. Nowadays, it's mainly used for humorous purposes.

This how it works. You use a phrase that rhymes with a word, instead of using the actual word itself. For example, I don't Adam and Eve it! (I don't believe it!).

Technically, you're a Cockney if you were born within the sound of the bells of the Church of St Mary Le Bow in Cheapside, London.

Here are a few more examples... You have got a lovely set of Bacons (bacon and eggs - legs)

Get yer Bacons up the Apples and Pears ( apples and pairs - stairs)

Pass the Army and Navy (army and navy - gravy).

I've got an Artful to help pay the rent (artful dodger - lodger).

I've just got me Barnet chopped (Barnet Fair - hair).

Take a Butcher's at that! (butchers hook - look).

I'm Cream Crackered! (cream crackered - knackered).

Ham'n'cheesy does it (Ham'n'cheesy - easy).

Me Jam Jar's Cream Crackered (jam jar - car).

That bloke's a complete Richard (Richard the Third - turd).
