    I've never been to NYC. I think London can be really overrated and overpriced but then it does have variety. I think they say NYC is safer now. I'm probably in a minority here, but I prefer Paris to London, much more inspiring and it feels intimate whilst still being really big and having loads to explore.
    Agreed that it is really overpriced, but I personally love London over NYC and Paris. I found the people and the conditions in Paris and NYC too similar. This may be strange but Berlin is probably my second favorite place next to London lol

    Never been to Berlin. Similar NYC and Paris, wow, that does surprise me.....
    Would like to go to Barcelona also, it looks pretty special.

    In terms of height, are the people of America taller or shorter than the British Population?

    Stop trolling and taking the mickey. That is just rude.
    Back to OP:
    Okay, I have a few questions. If it is of any contextual help, I have foreign parents, but i am british(born here) and live in south london, but hey ive been around, and i am also 17, in sixth form.
    How well did you do in your gcses last summer? Would you, based on a greater knowledge than I on American schooling, argue that gcses are easier or vice versa?
    My friend wants to go apply for aeronautical engineering at MIT, are the chances really lower than something like Imperial in the Uk? Would/are you considering going back to New York/America for future studies or a job?
    Also in relation to transport. Why exactly is it that you prefer the Britiah system? (I am completely ignorant of how american systems are/NY) but I find the tube/underground is severely congested a lot the time... literally squishing in on every train especially on the main lines (which i dont know lol) but i.e jubilee/northern. Same with inter city trains i.e overground which are often packed. And buses too, which are often full up- everyone standing up right till the front door! Anyone else has to wait for the next.
    Also, i love london, but do you find it safer in NY or here? Since its really dark here now.. after 4-5pm with winter, it feels quite gloomy and scary perhaps? I dont know my point but take this question in whatever way
    Thanks, T

    Just talk in a slow patronising voice, extending each word to the max and add a few "dudes" = sorted. I have a killer american accent and can also laugh in french

    I have not been through american schooling! I can not answer most of these comparison questions since I moved to the UK when I was 10, why before I had to sit any meaningful exams.
    Be happy with what transport you have in London, because I can tell you it's the best in the world. Yeah it can get really busy at peak hours but that's with any city that's busy.
    I like the winter and night time so I'm not complaining about the short days.
    Gee, everyone likes the snow and christmad which is part of the deal of winter and dark nights, but getting a cold/flu is a pain in the neck haha. Summer over winter 100%! English summers are perfect imo, not too hot but not too cold
    If this transport is the best in the world.. shoot me right now lol, i got nothing to look forward to . Mind that crossrail looks interesting. On the topic of rail/engineering, what do you know about the "hyperloop" project? Its American!!
