    Default What are the differences in culture between each Anglosphere nation

    There seems to be an overall common "Anglosphere" culture between the UK and US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Caribbean countries(With a bit more African influence).

    But what are some of the cultural differences between these countries you've noticed?

    Definitely the food,(This is my comparison to British and American cuisines) and each of the cultures besides Britain were and still influence by other elements within their societies. For example New Zealanders use a great deal of Maori words, hell you can watch the Maori language news on television. As far as Australia it is hard to tell, and I wonder how Aboriginal Australians shaped modern Australian life, but it is not at the same extent as the New Zealand Maori who is far more numerous. I lived in England as well, i can say you do have foreign or immigrant influence but it is not the same extent as the United States, but i could be wrong.


    Also the Governmental structure is somewhat different as well, and remember America does not have a Queen. As you remarked the Caribbean is definitely African influenced, there is no argument there.

    The main thing I can tell from the Australians compared to Americans is that Aussies are a bit less P.C about certain things, and lives in a less "Dog Eat Dog" culture compared to the US. And the food too.

    I agree Australians are less P.C, especially of the use of the word "Abo" in certain areas in Australia were i visited. However we must take into account of the regional differences in Australia, since it is about the same size geographically as the United States. I would assume since the Aboriginals are more numerous in Western Australia therefore we may slightly see their influence in the local culture.

    Differences (among many)
    • The U.S., Canada and Belize drive on the right side of the road
    • Britain, the Anglophone Islands, Guyana and I think Australia drive on the wrong side (lol)
    • The U.S. has changed the spelling for many words (favour, labour, colour, centre, cheque, colonise, realise, etc...)
    • The U.S. and Canada doesn't call breakfast, "drinking tea". The other Anglophones do.


    Similarities
    Anglophone people generally don't kiss on the cheek?

    I have heard from some distant in-laws who live in UK that Australia's immigration policies are relatively strict, and that their national healthcare is better than the UK. They ended up moving back to UK for employment reasons and were disappointed about it.

    I'd be interested in hearing more about Australia actually. We have several forum members who live there. Maybe they will share their perspectives.

    Do they? I haven't heard that one.

    ...but I think the UK has a meal called "tea" which is in the late morning or something.
