  3. 3. What about lifestyle in albania???<br />Is it much more similiar to America or Great Britain lifestyle???<br />
  4. 4. School life in Uk<br />Education is an important part of British life. There are hundreds of schools, colleges and universities, including some of the most famous in the world.<br />Education is free and compulsory for all children between the ages of 5 - 16. Some children are educated at home rather than in school.<br />
  5. 5. School life in Uk<br />Children's education in England is normally divided into two separate stages. They begin with primary education at the age of five and this usually lasts until they are eleven. Then they move to secondary school, there they stay until they reach sixteen, seventeen or eighteen years of age.<br />Teachers in primary schools ( 4 - 11 years old) are always addressed by their surname by parents and pupils alike, always Mr, Mrs or Miss Smith<br />
  6. 6. School life in Usa<br />. The American educational system can be one of the best in the world, but only if you make sure you and your children get the most out of it. The United States really has several systems, at different levels, from public elementary and secondary schools through universities and colleges of every variety. Trade and technical schools fill important needs. American educational resources are impressive, even if the delivery of educational services is haphazard.<br />

  8. 8. Work<br />The Working Day<br />The usual working day starts at 9am and finishes by 5pm. Most people work a five-day week.<br />How hard do British people work?<br />The working week is, on average, the longest of any country in Europe. In 1998 a new law was passed saying that workers do not have to work more than 48 hours a week if they don't want to. However, about 22% of British workers do work more than a 48-hour a week.<br />UK Employment Law<br />Children are not legally allowed to work until they are 13. Under-15s can work up to five hours on Saturdays (and weekdays in the summer holidays), to a maximum of 25 hours a week during school holidays. They can only work two hours maximum on schooldays and Sundays. Over-15s can work eight hours maximum on Saturdays and school holiday weekdays, and up to 35 hours a week during the holidays.<br /> <br />
  9. 9. Leisure<br />What do British and American people like doing at the weekends ?<br />The weekends are a time for families in Uk & Usa. Often the parents are not at work having worked a five day week from Monday to Friday. Saturdays are a busy time for shops with many families going shopping.<br />
  10. 10. Leisure<br />Sundays used to be a very special day of the week in Britain. It was the one day of the week for 'worship and rest'. The shops were closed and most people were at home or at church. Popular leisure activities on Sunday used to be going to church and doing odd jobs around the home such as gardening<br />

  16. 16. Fashion in Britain<br />As the UK is very much a western society - we wear very much the same as any other modern western society - ranging from Jeans and Tee shirts (whether with designer labels or not) to full business suits for office work (if required). Special clothers for the climate include heavy overcoats or anoraks for cold wintry weather to raincoats and umbrellas, for weather rain. Materials used cover every type and colour of fabric available, especially consider that Britain is a multi cultural society and in certain cities (Bradford for an example) you will find many stores with very colourful silk available for making in Sari's and other ethnic clothes.<br />
