Kimstudies - Home. 8B English - Jane Lambourne. Interactive: European Stereotypes. As part of the Europa project, newspapers from six European countries (Britain, France, Germany, Poland, Spain, and Italy) were asked to stereotype each other, and then asked cultural commentators in each country to assess how accurate they are.

Interactive: European Stereotypes

You can read the resulting articles on The Guardian website. Here's an extract from the one about the British: The stereotype is itself a stereotype.

Off to the beach this summer? Then you’ll need some beach vocabulary. The school holidays have started here in the UK and this weekend will see many families fly off to sunnier countries to catch some of those rays and to luxuriate in warm sea waters.

Having just returned from an idyllic two weeks in Barbados with its white sandy beaches and turquoise blue waters, I can totally empathise with the excitement that will be felt across households as families pack their suitcases remembering to take with them their swimsuits – trunks for boys and men; bikinis, tankinis, one-piece swimsuits for girls and women; their beach towels; shorts;T-shirts; light summer dresses; sparkly sandals; flip flops; sunglasses (or shades) and many more items.

Of course, we mustn’t forget to take our suntan or sunscreen lotions with us. Years ago, people used to go on a beach holiday and not bother with sun protection. So armed with sun protection, swimsuits, beach towels and all the right clothes for a beach holiday, what are you going to do?

It is celebrated in the United States, England, France, Scotland, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Sweden, Germany and Norway. The custom of shouting “April Fool!” Comes from the United States.

Nobody knows where the “April Fish” comes from. Perhaps, because April has the best fishing or because the zodiacal sign of Pisces rules in April. Today, in sweet shops they sell chocolate fish for April Fool’s Day. Friends send one another postcards, with some silly dialogue, with fish pictures. Other people pin a paper fish on someone’s back without being caught.
