Mind the Gap

Mind the language gap, that is. I'm currently searching for books to help us adjust to the Queen's English. I don't want to accidently insult someone's grandmother. My goal is to brush up on the Brits before taking off for Old Blighty. Here are a few books I think might help. I will review the books in a later post.

I'm definitely getting "Rules, Britannia" by Tony Summers Hargis.

I'm also considering an anthropology text, "Watching the English: The Hidden Rules of English Behaviour" by Kate Fox

"Brittania in Brief" looks like it would be good for someone going on holiday.
