I foolishly asked the British students, “Why do youneed a kettle? Can’t you just make your tea in themicrowave?”

Never assume that a British person is English.
It will be highly resented by the Scottish, Welsh, and certain Irish people.
And never assume that what English people do is typical of what British people do.
There are over 130 languages spoken in Britain, and the Scottish, Welsh, and Irish have theirown languages, apart from that, they sometimes speak English in accents that areindecipherable to most English people.
Also, there are very few English people who speak English in the way it is spoken by Newsreaders, actors, or politicians.
‘Thanks’ or ‘That’s okay’ just after someone says ‘Sorry’ to you.
The correct response is for both of you to say ‘Sorry’ and keep saying it until you’re well out ofearshot.
