Mind The Gap-Visiting the United Kingdom

A quick trip to the United Kingdom is a great option for the 'english' speakers (Americans especially). You can experience a great deal of rich history and charm in a place where everyone with a British accent just sounds so much smarter than you are. Your trip will feel like the live version of an Austin Powers movie and you will hear and see many words and phrases commonly used.
