If you are English, please read this book with a light heart and do what the English do best - have a laugh at yourself. If you are a visitor, or are planning to visit England's sometimes sunny, sometimes cloudy, and sometimes windy shores, this book will help you to begin to appreciate, if not fully understand, this unique country and its people. Each page of the book features a section entitled 'Metaphorically Speaking' - a testimony to the English love of metaphors, which can often cause confusion if English is not your native language. These sections explore some of the many unusual metaphors a visitor might hear, and offer helpful advice on when to use them. Featuring humorous illustrations throughout, this is a hilarious and informative read for all nationalities.
