British Vs American English Differences

Published 2 years ago

Look at the cooky differences between British and American English! British was brought to American soil with the 17th-century settlers. From then on, the rustics on the other side of the pond have done their best to distort the language, losing many a vital “u” as they went. The spread of English was also facilitated by the little-known British Empire. Through trade and conquest the language spread around the world.

These comparison graphics were madeby the American English website crew. This organization is part of the United States Department of State and works to promote learning English as a foreign language (EFL), exploring American culture, and participating in the global EFL community.
