Me, on my first week in the UK. Unaware of the nuances and accents of any other nationalities that speak English apart from the cast of X-Files and Friends.
The TV is on in our shared student flat playing Home and Away. I turn and see the actors heading down to the beach with their surfboards. With a mixture of awe and amazement I say to my flatmate:
‘I didn’t know you had beaches like that in England!’
