British entertainments are also traditional. National sports are considered to be golf, cricket, and tennis, polo, fishing and hunting foxes. Cricket for England is more than a game. The British play it every Sunday. If you really want to win their trust, try to learn the rules of cricket.
It is a wonderful tradition to give a good education to children. Private boarding schools are very popular among wealthy people.
The British are very proud of their pure English (especially in comparison with the U.S.). English for the English - not just a means of distinguishing themselves from the foreigners. It is also a way to determine the class of society of the interlocutor.
