  9. 9. <ul><li>5. Stereotypes. Seven ways to annoy a Scot </li></ul><ul><li>Here are seven things almost guaranteed to provoke annoyance in </li></ul><ul><li>any Scot, regardless of sex. (Conversely, if you want to be popular </li></ul><ul><li>in Scotland, you might treat this as a list of things to avoid.)   Match the texts with </li></ul><ul><li>the titles. </li></ul><ul><li>a. Talk about men wearing skirts. </li></ul><ul><li>b. Use Scotch to refer to the people. </li></ul><ul><li>c. Pretend never to have heard of Robert Burns. </li></ul><ul><li>d. Use England instead of Britain, or English instead of British. </li></ul><ul><li>e. Say it would be better if the UK had one football team instead of four. </li></ul><ul><li>f. Use British instead of Scottish. </li></ul><ul><li>g. Imitate the local accent. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>1. …………………………………………………. </li></ul><ul><li>There are actually four parts to the United Kingdom. England is one of them rather than all of them. If you don’t believe this, have a look at a map. </li></ul><ul><li>2. ………………………………………………………….. </li></ul><ul><li>This one’s a bit sophisticated. The trick is, when a Scot or a Scottish team actually manages to win any sort of international competition, you describe it as a great British victory. If they lose you call it another defeat for Scotland. (If you do this regularly enough, people will probably think you work for the BBC.) 3. ………………………………………………………….. </li></ul><ul><li>Scotch is fine for whisky, terriers and various types of food, but the human inhabitants prefer to be known as Scottish or Scots. 4. ………………………………………………………….. </li></ul><ul><li>If you really haven’t heard of Robert Burns, conceal your ignorance. 5. ………………………………………………………….. </li></ul><ul><li>You can get even more of a reaction if you say, &quot;...if there was only one English team&quot;. See above. </li></ul><ul><li>6. ………………………………………………………….. </li></ul><ul><li>Skirts, whether made of tartan or not, are generally worn by women or male transvestites. The much more substantial garment, constructed of 6 or 8 metres of woven wool and worn by men, is known as a kilt. If you really want to raise the temperature, you could add that you think men in kilts look effeminate. </li></ul><ul><li>7. ……………………………………………………………… </li></ul><ul><li>Roll your /r/ and use a very close /u/. Sprinkle your conversation with stage-Scottish expressions like &quot;Och aye the noo&quot;, and &quot;Hoots, mon&quot;. This works particularly well if you normally speak with a standard BBC English accent.  </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>6. Fill in the blanks with the following verb forms </li></ul><ul><li>have experienced did you know adds isn’t was banned </li></ul><ul><li>is still flourishing growing happens have probably heard is making dreamed of </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;Tradition: the act of transmitting or handing down from one generation to another.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>Scotland has been handing down its traditions for close to a thousand years now, since the earliest days of the clans in the twelfth century. But every generation ………. the thumbprint of its own culture to the whole. Scottish traditions are not something sterile under glass and steel in a cold museum. They are vibrant, living things, constantly ………………. and evolving. </li></ul><ul><li>The pipes, the haggis, designer kilts and folk dancing </li></ul><ul><li>For instance, everybody knows the cliché of the piper on the shortbread tin. How many ……………………… the reality of a hundred pipers skirling in deafening sound? This …………….. an image from Scotland's past: it …..……………. every August on Glasgow Green. </li></ul><ul><li>Or look at fashion. Many people ………………….that the wearing of tartan ………………..in Scotland after the Battle of Culloden , but ………….. that tartan only gained worldwide popularity in the 19th century because of Queen Victoria 's love of all things Scottish? Or that the kilt ………………. a comeback on the catwalk as designers like Jean Paul Gaultier, Vivienne Westwood and Glasgow's own Jonathan Saunders take traditional Scottish dress to places the clan chiefs never …………….? </li></ul><ul><li>The Ceilidh ………………, but these days it's likely to have the energy level of something closer to a rock concert! </li></ul><ul><li>. </li></ul>
