Good steps to follow and I can't think of anything to add.

P.S. Thanks for providing the origins of the phrase "and Bob's your uncle". A lover of British comedies, I have heard the phrase but not even my British friends could tell me how it began!

I've got plenty of them, Jacque (British phrases, and some I still use - like car park instead of parking lot.

As George Bernard Shaw said: "England and America are two countries separated by a common language."

Time spent living in certain sections of Canada can also ease the transition.

When I was an expat in the UK, I was talking to my firm's partners about how US employees lacked an understanding of workers compensation coverage. I said, "None of them know how to get treatment when they are injured whilst on the job". The room exploded in laughter, and I thought perhaps I had misused "whilst". It was three days later before someone explained to me what "on the job" means over there.
