Do YOU have the insight to write one of these articles?

Check-out the Italians article. Can you contribute real insight like this — and with similar humour? If so, why not submit a 1,200 - 1,800 word article in the same format. It should comprise single paragraphs with appropriate sub-headings. Ideally it should also include a picture to sum-up the nationals. If you cannot provide this yourself then just recommend one from the iStockphoto website that we could use. Please also include a head-and-shoulders picture of yourself.

At present, articles accepted for this section are being fast-tracked. All published articles are part of our FreeStyle competition. For further details visit the Contributors page.

We are particularly looking for informed articles on Americans, Spanish and French. Can you help?
