hey every body 
I'm from Algeria , in first , thank you for this site  , where we can learn English.
i said a bout the subject of to day ,that the problem is  not in the different country; we can fund the people polite  and impolite  in all over the world.    

i think it's not fair  to judge any country of being rude or polite , it depends on the persons theme selves

Hello everybody!!!
I have a really bad cold !!!
I´m from Spain and i agree with Tess when she says that "in Spain people don´t say please so often". Nowadays young people are impolite, and they almost never say "thanks" or "sorry".
One Spanish movie that I recommend is "El orfanato" of Alejandro Amenabar.
One more thing to Adam: Would you mind telling me what this means: "finally though"?
Thank you!!!!
