I can not depend on this data because it was given in my personal opinion to the last. Once in 2013 I was studying English in the city of Manchester, England.
I myself tried to see the country of Britain abstractly and I think that I could objectively capture the figure of a foreign country called Britain. Since it was a language study abroad for only one month, it could be unknown data as it was not possible to actually see the real British life for a long time. It is a fact that the universality of daily life does not change in any country.
