British English -v- American English
It has been said that “England and America are two countries divided by a common language”. This statement is perhaps a bit of an overstatement as the dialects are, in fact, mutually intelligible and are arguably growing more similar with time. However, differences persist, and we as teachers should be aware of them in order to properly prepare students. This session highlights the key differences in pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary between American and British English. It also provides resources and references to help teachers prepare lessons.
