While both Europe and the United States of America are considered the Western world, it's good to know there are some differences in culture.If you are considering moving to a European country, you will find the information below helpful as you plan your move.
One cultural difference is how the countries perceive(理解，认为)time and space.For example, a house in the United States that is 200 years old would be considered ancient.This is probably because America is a fairly young country.However, in Europe, something would not be considered ancient unless it was at least 2，000 years old.However, perception of distance seems to be the opposite.While Europeans would consider 100 kilometers a long way to drive, Americans would not think twice.This could be due to the fact that Europe is smaller and more heavily populated.In fact, the United States is over twice the size of Europe.
Cars are another factor that differs greatly between Europe and the United States.American automobiles usually have automatic transmissions(自动变速器)while European cars generally have manual gears(手动变速器)．European automobiles are smaller and more roundshaped, while American cars are larger and more squareshaped.Trucks and limousines(豪华轿车)are vehicles that Americans enjoy.In Europe, however, these types of vehicles are hardly seen, as they prefer smaller cars due to parking and traffic congestion．
The view of education is another cultural difference between the European countries and the United States.In America, parents may save for many years and even go into debt to pay for their children to attend college.Most schools and universities in Europe, however, are free of tuition.In fact, children are expected to attend college there.

A．tell the differences between Europe and America
B．advise people to travel to Europe and America
