Last night a New Yorker told me that he had identified me as being English from the way I was holding my pint.
Up to now I had never really thought anyone could have identified me as being of one nationality or another from the way I hold a glass. I didn’t think I held a glass in an English way.
Stop reading, start speaking
Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.
Now, I do know that the Swiss hold wine glasses low down the stem towards the base, and can easily spot a non-Swiss person from this glass holding trait.
But I did not think Britons held glasses in a particular way. Apparently we do.
It’s not just they way that we walk…
