xx [Poll] Londoners, what do you think of your city?
« Thread started on: Sep 7th, 2006, 09:34am »

Hi! I'm studying cultural differences at the moment and it would be very helpful and friendly if people who live in London can answer to this poll. The aim is only to compare French culture with other ones and it will only take a few minutes. Just write the question number and a quick answer. Please give your opinion!

1 - Age: 15-25 25-35 35-45 45-55 55-65 65+

2 - Sex: M F

3 - Where are you from? (country and city)

4 - What is your job?

5 - What do you think of France?

6 - What do you think of French people?

7 - Do you strictly have to be on time at work? If you are late what will you be told?

8 - Do you meet your friends on time? If you are late what will you be told?

9 - What do you think of the life in London?

10 - Do you think the English are friendly?

11 - How do you feel about the tourists coming in London?

12 - According to you, how important is family?

Thank you very much!

Firstly, I don't live in London, I live outside of London, but travel there regularly (like once/twice a month). Also a lot of my friends work in London.

1 - Age: 15-25 25-35 35-45 45-55 55-65 65+
I'm 20

2 - Sex: M F
M

3 - Where are you from? (country and city)
England, Essex (is the county)

4 - What is your job?
Insurance Technician

5 - What do you think of France?
On the whole a nice place. I do kind of follow the stripey-top, onion carrying stereotype. I do think that the French as whole are a little bit arrogant (maybe I'm just thinking of Frank Lebeouf) and so I enjoy when England beat France at anything. Paris is an exciting city though.

6 - What do you think of French people?
Oh, I've kind of answered that above.

7 - Do you strictly have to be on time at work? If you are late what will you be told?
We have what's called flexi-time. It means it doesn't matter if you're late, but that time has to be made up. I think in the city it is a bit more serious about punctuality.

8 - Do you meet your friends on time? If you are late what will you be told?
I am never late when meeting my friends, none of us are. Everybody is always 10-15 mins late. Any later, and something may be said, but we are all fairly relaxed.

9 - What do you think of the life in London?
Very busy, very hustle-bustle. I prefer a quieter, less hurried approach, which you find in London (and all major cities I imagine).

10 - Do you think the English are friendly?
Yes and no. I think it all depends on who you meet, and who you talk to. Gang culture is more of a threat these days, which shows a less frinedly side of England. as a main though, I would say that the English are pretty friendly.

11 - How do you feel about the tourists coming in London?
I am happy that people feel the need to visit our city. It is great to think that tourists can come over and enjoy themselves.

12 - According to you, how important is family?
Probably the single most important thing to me.

1 - Age:
15-25

2 - Sex:
Male

3 - Where are you from?
London,England

4 - What is your job?
student

5 - What do you think of France?
I feel France seems a more cultured place than England, although what i hear of the more lower class areas it sounds more hostile than the english equivalent.

6 - What do you think of French people?
I feel that the french are more traditional than the english, and less welcoming to outsiders due to their old -fashioned views, whereas say in England this is less prevelant in mainstream society, althought it may still be thought.

7 - Do you strictly have to be on time at work? If you are late what will you be told?
Yes, and if im late i will be told thats its my education im missing and i must catch up with the work.

8 - Do you meet your friends on time? If you are late what will you be told?
mostly, and that im a nightmare at meeting on time!

9 - What do you think of the life in London?
busy and multi-cultured, which doesnt mean a inter-racial society but more of a hostility because of peoples fear of what others may be thinking or doing. It is a good city and any bad publicity it gets is only because it is the capital, although it can be dangerous at points.
10 - Do you think the English are friendly?

11 - How do you feel about the tourists coming in London?
Do overcrowd the area in some ways, but i stay away from more touristy area's so don't mind too much.

12 - According to you, how important is family?
important, in the sense that they care for you and help you become an adult and make it in the bigger world, should always be kept close and seen regularly.
