This video discusses British vs American English, from the perspective of a Japanese guy learning English and being taught different things by different teachers.

Do you relate to this video? 

Do you speak in British vs American English?

All the best, Leia

I want to use the American way, but of course I can't always be sure was it is.
At (on?) my hompage I have made this:

Only one choice for me seeing as I’m British! I don’t think many ‘American English’ words creep into my vocabulary either!

#3 TV-movies and relatives. Most Swedes in my age have relatives in the USA, so we are used to migration and having contact with people who went to the States or still live there. So fun when they come to Sweden and will stay for a time in our guesthouse (the old house).

I bought a lot of Computermagazines in other languages, because they were interesting. The American were easier to understand than those printed and written in England. but the German were the best.

#5 Very interesting, I would love to have a guest house to invite all my international friends I've met here in Sweden to my home in England.

All the best, Leia
