There are several habits and mannerisms that divide us from other nations. In fact, research has found that dunking biscuits in a cup of tea is top of the list. Are you surprised? 

I’ve compiled a list of seven things us Brits do. Check it out and see how many make you a classic Brit.

So, how did you do?

Are you ready to embrace the British culture, or hide and change your habits?

Be proud of where you're from.

It's funny how different cultures have their own inside habits. These are just a handful of things that make us British. 

Either way, be proud to be you and proud of where you're from. You are special!
