British and American English

In our last post, we looked at the culture of Halloween in the UK and some language. One thing that is clear is that this traditional event is very popular in the USA and many people make such a big effort when preparing for Halloween in America.

In fact, there are a lot of differences between the UK and USA with many of the differences being the language. This blog post looks at the differences between British and American English with different names for the same thing.
