Hi Rorotea,

1. The short answer to your question is no, religion said to be in decline. Here is a detailed survey of people's attitude to religion in the UK: http://www.vexen.co.uk/UK/religion.html

2. The vast majority of educated people accept Darwin's theory of evolution. Small religious minorities still believe in Creationism (the story in the Bible of how God made man).

3. Yes, Nottingham University has wireless facilities all over the campus. You'll get your own username and password to use the university network. Many public places such as libraries and cafés also have wireless facilities.

4. It's very common for British students to download media using peer to peer software. I would suggest limiting time spent on video games at university because they can be addictive and negatively affect your academic and social life.

5. Yes, and you should be able to get a student discount using your student id card.

6. Yes, you should register with your local doctor in your first week in the UK. The university will help you do this. Britain has a public healthcare system (the National Health Service) so you can make an appointment and see a doctor for free at any time.

7. No, the skirts you refer to are called 'kilts' and they are traditional Scottish clothing. Scottish people dress in the same way as English people.

8. Football is by far the most popular sport, it is almost a national obsession. Cricket and rugby are also played widely in British schools. Girls often play netball and field hockey at school.

9. Yes, on TV, or you can buy premier league football tickets on the internet.

10. UK taxes are fairly high because of public sevices such as health and schooling. Here is more information about taxes in the UK: http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/MoneyTaxAndBenefits/Taxes/index.htm

11. You can find seafood of varying quality in Britain. Fresh seafood is generally more expensive than fried fish.

12. Try to get to know what kind of a person they are and find areas of common interest. Avoid making direct statements like 'you're so tall' or 'you're so beautiful' as this may cause embarassment. Old people sometimes don't like to be asked their age or their salary.

13. BBC radio 4 has a lot of standard British accents: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/ but you should practise listening to a wide range of accents because less than 3% of the population actually speak RP English. See this link for more information: http://www.bl.uk/learning/langlit/sounds/

14. When you arrive in the UK, go to a phone shop and ask them for a sim card that can make international calls and texts at cheap rates. There are various offers that you can choose from and the staff will help you choose one that suits you.

15. In general, you will probably have an advantage over British students. Asian students in the UK have a reputation for being good at maths compared to Europeans.

16. Try to get in touch with Chinese students who are currently studying architecture in the UK to get their opinion on this. Yuu should not find it too difficult, as long as you've got a strong interest in it. As you mentioned in the last question, you may find you are ahead of the British students in the maths aspect of the course. If you like, I could give you the email address of some of the foundation students from last year.

17. Yes, here is more info: http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/british/architecture_01.shtml

Oh..
Thank you for your help and your patience.
Thank you very much.
Through your help, I learn more about the UK.
And give me the email address of some of the foundation students from last year please.
I can write to them to consult about the situation.
