United Kingdom

This country is an island in the Atlantic Ocean. Its neighbour is Ireland. It has an area of 244,820 km2.

Its capital city is the famous city of London with 7.512.400 of inhabitants. If you want to go there you have to know English because it’s the official language and you have to go to the bank and change your Euros into sterling pounds . It is a parlamentary monarchy, being Queen Elisabeth II the present queen and Gordon Brown, the Prime Minister. This country is a member of the E.U.

Its demographic growth is 0.28%. The life expectancy of men is almost 77 years old and of women is a little bit more than 81 years old. The quality of life is a bit low compared to the most developed countries of the E.U and the migration rate is 2, 17 migrants/1.000 habitants.

The unemployment is a bit high because it rose up to 7.9% of the total population. Its GDP is about $2.680 trillion.

We’re going to talk about Scotland because we are working together with a school there and want to exchange solutions, proposals and experiences with the students.

Scotland is a country that is part of the United Kingdom. Occupying the northern third of the island of Great Britain, it shares a border with England to the south and is bounded by the North Sea to the east, the Atlantic Ocean to the north and west, and the North Channel and Irish Sea to the southwest. In addition to the mainland, Scotland consists of over 790 islands including the Northern Isles and the Hebrides.

Edinburgh, the country's capital and second largest city, is one of Europe's largest financial centres.[10][11] Edinburgh was the hub of the Scottish Enlightenment of the 18th century, which transformed Scotland into one of the commercial, intellectual and industrial powerhouses of Europe. Glasgow, Scotland's largest city was once one of the world's leading industrial cities.

Finally Scotland is a famous country because of its olds castles and its exuberant vegetation, the reason is that the weather is very wet and cold.

But the most famous things are the kilts which are a type of traditional skirt that the Scottish people wear and the bagpipes which are a type of instrument with a bag.
