Default The International Cultural Exchange

Given that in my time here i`ve spoken to people from all over the world. I thought it would be good if we could ask each other questions about each others countries & also how our countries are portrayed by others.

So anyway i`ll start this off by asking any Americans here to answer the following questions........

1. Everytime there is a visiting American president in the UK there is a lot of talk about the 'special relationship' between the two countries , do you feel any closer to the UK than say for example any other country?

2. In the last Football World Cup , the USA had their best ever tournament & got to the quarter finals, do you care & did you watch any of the matches?

3. Which British band do you feel has had the most impact in the U.S. in say the last 5 or 6 years?

4. When you think of the UK , what is the first image that comes into your head?

5. David Beckham is probably the biggest British sports star around the world , are you aware of him & what he does?

Do british people really have tea and crumpets?

Mmmm sherbert
And just for the record,over here,david beckham gets more publicity for being hot,rich,with a spice girl,and allkinds of other crap that have nothing to do with soccer. By the looks of what is shown on tv, i never would have known he played sports if someone hadnt told me.
