    1. Britons are the REAL English people. In real sense, an American speaking English close to an Englis person dey sound like Kwarrapshun.
      I prefer my kids to watch British based Cartoons like ZOU and HIVES. The spoken English is like Butter icing from cakes and cream....
      ScoTtishhhh... I will just be smiling cos I don't even understand anything.

    Most especially in spellings.
    Sometimes I spell "colour" as "color"
    And so many others I can't recall now.
    Oh well, as long as the message is being passed.

  13. Good one. The articles and spellings are almost same in some cases. Depending on context, you know which to apply. But from DH and an overflow of the Montessori work center in my home, I make good to say that I know many of these things. I see all manner of dictionaries and charts from their tutors n lesson teachers. The one I still argue with him is the one of second floor, I don't ever agree to that.

    Anyway British o, American o, e get who go call me for phone I pick my handset, head out and go blow pidgin English throughout. Iiiiiii na English be my first language? *blinking eyes*
