How to make a British mate

By GB Mag Editor Jessie Brown

WHEN you move to the UK making friends with the Brits can seem like a challenge. The culture is different, the accent can be difficult to understand and you are probably still trying to adjust to the weather. But with a few simple tricks and strategic friend-meeting locations we can help you make a British friend in no time at all.
Conversation starters
This is probably the best tip we can give you…talk about the weather. In Britain we spend most of our time talking about the weather. It doesn’t matter if it is sunny, rainy, or snowy, the weather is a topic of everyday conversation. Plus you don’t need to be an expert to comment on the weather.
It is all about location, location, location! Brits tend to congregate in the same areas and often it is the local pub. Head to the pub and strike up a conversation with absolutely anyone. Having a beer with friends is part of the British culture and it is even socially acceptable to invite someone you have just met to go to the pub for a drink. This tip may not appeal to everyone but if you don’t like drinking you can still get involved in the social side of the pub life.
Join a community
There are many communities you can join in the UK to gain instant friends. Cultural groups, societies, clubs and even sporting teams provide a great starting point to meet British people. GB Mag also has its own community making it easier for international students to meet people! We are holding parties this year and YOU are invited to come along. If you want to attend and meet other international students new to the UK, simply join our online community
