    I'm really sorry if my posts are against your norms, or my standard of English is deemed ten-year old in the UK.
    My mom's a British and my dad's an American. Currently, I've chosen the British education system over the American after an argument with my dad. Well, I've always been sort of a pro-Britain like my mom.
    However, it do seemed that my nationality as an American really trigger some disrespect from British.. I consider myself more towards my maternal side, and wishes to study in Oxbridge over the Ivy League, which led me to this forum.
    Then it came about that I was hated, seriously, and was thought to be a Pakistani (maybe because of my phrasing). Lol

    Do British citizens really hate Americans? I need an honest answer.
    Here's my thread http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=1790947.
    Thanks

    The average British citizen has a view that Americans are all overweight, hopelessly patriotic of a country that meddles in other countries' affairs, as well as having an average IQ of 50.
    Your post doesn't exactly smite that view.

    I have no problem with Americans, or in fact most people, who can use grammar properly.

    "it do seemed that"

    "it do seemed"

    We don't really hate Americans - we just find the stereotype amusing.

    If you seriously want to go to Oxbridge (or want people to think English is your first language), then I would suggest improving your grammar...

    You seriously need to work on your grammar and live up to your username..'cause at the moment you are failing.

    no offence, but you can't expect a serious answer if you claim to be an American and write like that.

    You're not American. English isn't your first language. And you couldn't get into Oxbridge or the Ivy League.
