Life in the UK and Understanding the British

If you are living in the UK and like me,
still finding your way, then be sure to have a look at the information provided by FOCUS. 
It is an invaluable resource and can make a big difference to the settling in period.
Check out their website:

"FOCUS offers personal advice and professional expertise on a range of services to help international professionals (and their families) successfully live and work in the UK. We are a non-profit staffed entirely by expatriates, offering a minimum of one year membership support and our Kensington location provides one-to-one contact, seminars and workshops. We maintain the most comprehensive resources for the international community all in one location!"

In addition to the Guides featured above, they also offer seminars. This one looks too intriguing to pass up. Details are available on the website.

  1. How funny - the British, of course, are extremely quirky and I would love to hear what's said about us! I'm living in the US now and could really use this kind of info about Uncle Sam.
