Waseem F

    I know what you mean Waseem, it takes some getting used to. But in the end you will make it; just give it time.

      Mr.Nakar made an excellent observation about spelling in the English speaking community in Canada (see comment below). This proves that being consistent is what really counts.

      … well Benjamin… I speak American and in spite of spelling and pronunciation differences,communication is still possible, isn’t it?

      Bye for now.

      Regino

    I prefer British accent 2 the american one
    s=z
    re=er

    kotoz

Thanks Benjamin, you seems like you don’t like American accent, do you?

gansukh

For me, It was a little bit bore Benjamin..
Thanks for this sort of lesson.. .
I think American copy the British words why there is only one difference when British uses doubling “LL” American is getting used single “L” the same When British uses single “L” then American is getting used “LL” that’s the difference nothing else…
British is best in English Language all the times..

Sivakumar

excellent clarification,THANKS a million

kayskays

There is some confusion b/w the usage of L and LL in both languages. Plz solve my problem.

Syedjavad

Thanks Benjamin for this Video :)

Priyanka

For me American accent is better. But when you know two ways of speaking is double good. Because the whole world learns English, and make in it their new changes.

Zenny

And why use LL instead L. Simply clever.

Zenny

So…? You didn”t tell us? What english you prefer? American or British?

katerinapas1

    you can understand it from his accent. British.

Júlio César L Sousa

For me, your style of spelling is British English; undoubtedly, you prefer your British English accent. By the way, I would say that I love to hear your British English accent.
Thanks for this quite useful lesson, Benjamin. :)

Chloe.Lee

Cristian Gutiérrez

Hello Benjamin , Hello everyone.
Easy but essential lesson . I wonder what english spelling is used in Canada and which english speaking countries use american english rather than British English . I think the old British possessions speak British English which could answer my question about Canada . So, which non-american country speaks American ?
Thank you Benjamin, see you next time.

tsamp

Tafa

Very nice lesson, Sir. H

Briklend Handersson

Very good lesson

Samar Taha

To add a little more to this, Canada officially uses the British spelling system, but many Canadians will write the American versions of words, as they were never officially taught these differences.

Sweet vest, Benjamin.

Alex

    You made a good point Alex; spelling differences are seldom taught in the language classroom. Teachers oftentimes use both spellings -American & English- indistinctly.

    Good to see you round!

    Regino

    Great lesson,Benjamim,as usual.
    How nice to see you here, Alex. I feel happy to
    see you, professors, interacting. Very nice,really.

emnaamira

I questioned myself… and I just realize that we used to learn British English in elementary school, and American English in high school. It would be nice if teachers explained it to us.
Thank you Benjamin.

Senida

    … well Senida… in spite of spelling differences,communication is still possible, isn’t it?

    Changing the subject a little bit Senida, do you really speak that many languages?

    In my case I’m trying to pick up some French,… and to tell the truth I’m having a really hard time;any advice on this?

    All my best for this New Year!

    Regino

      Communication is possible, but teachers would give you less points on test if you don’t do test – their way.

      And I don’t speak many languages… my language is Bosnian – Croatian – Serbian (3 countries – almost same language), and I speak English and German. And that’s all.

      Best wishes for New Year to you too… :)

      Senida

        Thanks for replying to my comment Senida.

        Please do not lose touch!

        See you round.

        Regino

Excellent class, thank u sir… Kindly could you please explain the differences among the usages of FEAR, AFRAID, SCARED, AFRAID& FRIGHTENED ? I am confused of these. Thank u…

junaidchithari

I would prefer to speak in British accent rather than speaking in American accent, & the reason is that,
they do not pronounce most part of the words and this case is positive in British accent.

safiullah Rahmani

like it) wanna speak like sritish people )

BusinkaAnny

Hello Benjamin,

I’m wondering if British use the shortened forms like ‘wanna, ‘gonna’, etc or they can be only heard in AmE.

Thanks a lot in advance

Elka0507

Thanks Benjamin!

Alex-1956

I got10 out to10
I love both accent. Good teacher 👍

HANA2005

In my personal opinion there is only 1 correct spelling for English words. Just because many people do something wrong doesn’t make it right. American English is a dialect, just like any other. It makes me upset when they say the British are spelling things wrong. I’m like hello it’s called English as is the language of England.

spikelucky

Good class, but I think that you shoud be more speking the word in US for to fix more the pronunciation.

Antonio Robson

I am an ESL teacher (American) and I just want to say this video is so brilliant beyond brilliance. You had me rolling on the ground for an hour. “I am going to McDonalds to get fat.”
Your American impersonation just made my day so much better. Thank you for this!
