Quiz: International students – how well do you know your British culture?

Quiz: International students – how well do you know your British culture?

Newsflash: to watch a British television series such as Peaky Blinders or Sherlock; to wear clothes from Topshop or Topman; to listen to artists such as Adele; to read books like Harry Potter; to shop at Tesco; and even to support English football teams like Manchester City or Liverpool, you don’t have to be from Britain.

These quintessentially-British things are enjoyed by many around the globe, and likely even yourself, despite not growing up in the country.

But that doesn’t matter – you’ve been exposed to British culture through films and a variety of media, which might lead you to think you have a relatively good grasp of British slang and culture…but do you really?

For anyone who didn’t grow up in England or the UK, here’s a quiz to see how well you know your British culture.
