TASK №5 (R6-1)

Read the text and answer the questions


People who come to Britain for the first time find some of the customs new and interesting. The English do not shake hands each time when they meet. When you go to a friend’s house for a meal, it is not the custom to say "Thank you” at the end of the meal as in most European countries. Here you wait until you are leaving to go home and then you thank your friends for their invitation.

Very few people, even people with quite a lot of money, have servants in their homes. It’s very difficult to find a servant and to find a good servant in even more difficult. They also want too much money for their job. So families do most of the housework themselves, and husbands usually work as much as wives. Most of the housework is done on Saturday mornings or afternoons when nobody works. Заказать выполнение  данной контрольной работы.
