  55. 58. 7. British Images <ul><li>A city </li></ul><ul><li>A tourist image </li></ul><ul><li>Clothes or accessories </li></ul><ul><li>Food and drinks </li></ul><ul><li>Sport </li></ul>
  56. 59. <ul><li>Many people think of Britain and immediately think of London. So we felt it was important to choose one characteristic image of London. </li></ul><ul><li>We chose Big Ben because it is part of the Houses of Parliament, which stand for tradition as well as today’s government. We decided not to include other tourist images because they don’t symbolize the whole country in the same way. </li></ul><ul><li>Many people think of a British man wearing a dark suit and carrying an umbrella, which is not very typical these days. We agreed that we should include the umbrella, however, because it says something about the weather, which people talk about all the time. </li></ul><ul><li>4. We all thought we ought to include an image of food and drink. Tea is a traditional image, but most young people now drink more coffee. We still eat a lot of fish and chips, however, so we decided on this to represent British food. </li></ul><ul><li>We were all determined to include a sport because so many sports originally came from Britain. We opted for a football rather than a cricket but because it is easier for foreigners to recognize. </li></ul>
  57. 60. <ul><li>A city - London </li></ul><ul><li>A tourist image - Big Ben </li></ul><ul><li>Clothes or accessories - an umbrella </li></ul><ul><li>Food and drinks - fish and chips, coffee </li></ul><ul><li>Sport - football </li></ul>
