United Kingdom

Hi, I'm Mariluz I'm from United Kingdom so I'm British. In my country three languages are spoken: English, Gaelic and Welsh. The political system of my country is a constitutional monarchy. United Kingdom is an island in the north of Europe placed between the North Sea and the Atlantic ocean. It's separated from the rest of Europe by the English Channel.
My country has been a member of the European Union since 1973.

The population of this island is around 61 million people and our currency is the pound sterling. The total area of the country is 44.820 km2. Its capital is London and other important cities are Oxford, Liverpool, Manchester, Cambridge, Cardiff and Brighton.

Some famous British people are Beckam, Robert Patinson and Newton. And some typical dishes are arbroath smokies, ulster fry and Lancashire hotpot.
