If you want to please an Englishman, be very polite about his garden. Perhaps, he will show you his garden and tell you about it. So you will listen to it and say, “How nice!” or “How interesting!”
2. In the past the English Sunday was a day of rest. Traditionally people did not write letters and read books on that day. They did not go to the concerts and did not do many other things. They stayed at home and had a rest together with the members of their family.
But today it is not so. Englishmen may write letters, read novels and play the piano. They visit picture galleries and go to concerts on Sundays. Cinemas are open on Sunday, but the theatres are closed.
People do not go to work on Sunday. Only a few small shops are open. Buses do not run so often as on weekdays.
3. In the English home a fireplace has always been the centre of interest in a room. People may like to sit at a window on a summer’s day, but for many months of the year they like to sit near the fire and watch its dance.
