While there are certainly many more varieties of English, American English and British English are the two varieties that are taught in most ESL/EFL programs. Generally, it is agreed that no one version is “correct” however, there are certainly preferences in use. The three major differences between between American and British English are:

  • Pronunciation – differences in both vowel and consonants, as well as stress and intonation
  • Vocabulary – differences in nouns and verbs, especially phrasal verb usage
  • Spelling – differences are generally found in certain prefix and suffix forms

OK, so you think your English is either American or British, try this exercise and see how many you know.
