British English versus American English

Many anecdotes can be told about the uses of a variety of English in a different English speaking area. If I feel brave enough, I will let you know some of them. So far, I am adding some webpages where you have a comprehensive list of vocabulary classified by topics to make a difference between British English and American English.


1. Masión Inglés
2. Woodlands
3. Saber Inglés: you can find a translation into Spanish too.
4. OM Personal: you can even listen to the words.
5. ESL About: you can find differences between spellings and even a translator from British English into American English and vice versa.
6. Learn English




The fantastically talented Hugh Laurie paid a house call to Ellen, and they played an exciting game of American slang versus English slang -- and the game was brilliant!




Do you know any more examples of differences between British English and American English? Let me know as a comment! Thank you!
