What's are your beliefs then? Obviously in summary, as I'm sure there would be a lot to say

Anything really from the gloomy Greek financial crisis and the Migrant news, to more upbeat things like Olympics and technological advancements in other countries

Six. Britain, Jamaica, Germany, Spain, Italy and France.

Basics of German, Korean and Japanese.

Too many to list.

A lot. I was raised in a Christian household and went to a predominately Muslim secondary school. Religion in general used to be of great interest to me and I have multiple qualifications in Religious Studies.

None that I'm interested in.

Basically the same as the pre Vatican two Catholics Church. Without the eucharist and transubstantiation. I support the established and preeminent Church of England within the British nation state.

Well sure I am interested in geo-political forecasting so I have to know things about other places.

I don't think going to other countries, eating foreign cuisine or knowledge of international events makes you cultured?

I'm currently reading 'The real british citizenship test' by Paul Sinha to make me more cultured.

But I've been to a few countries, remember bits and pieces from different GCSE subjects and remember stuff from quizzing.

I've only ever lived in Britain. I've been to France, Spain, Croatia, Montenegro, Albania, Turkey, Portugal, and the United States.

A fair amount of French and Spanish, though I'm pretty rusty. I took up Italian, but it was some business-based course so I didn't really bother. I'd like to refresh my knowledge, though.

Greek, Italian, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Mexican, Spanish, French, Swedish, Carribean, Persian (my absolute favourite), other Middle Eastern and North African, Balkan sort of stuff.

Mostly Roman Catholicism, a little about Orthodoxy, Judaism, and Islam.

I try to keep up.

I love foreign films and go to the opera when I can.

How many countries have you been/lived in? England for most of my life, lived in Greece for 4 years from when I was 1 till 4. I've been to Spain, Greece, Italy, Holland and France.

Do you speak any other languages? Does very basic Spanish count?

Which different cuisines have you tried? Most Asian, Spanish, Italian, Greek ect.

Do you know much about Religion? A little bit. I'm interested in it though so should probably read up about it more.

Are aware of international events? Not sure... I think?

You say 'all my life' only when you have lived in one place exclusively.
You clearly are not cultured.

So, this is very good question for me, as for me i try to study different country's culture, as it is very interesting and very important for me. And according to Chekhov, “being cultured” is synonymous with being compassionate, sensitive, mindful, kind, true to oneself and to others, resourceful, grateful, aware, tasteful and seasoned with a great amount of courage and integrity—qualities most individuals are or should be reaching for on a daily basis. In other words, to be cultured is to be whole.
