Which english do you prefer? The American English or (British) English? In Belgium we learn (British) English because it's in my teacher's view more polite, and less lousy.. He also says that Americans are very lazy with their language, saying things that grammatically aren't right. Is this right? There are big differences actually i learned. Colors is Colours in (British) English, same with some other words defense is defence in (British) English, same with other words letter is lettre in (Britis)h English, same with other words but this is changing says my teacher english.. I have always learned American English, i live in Belgium but i stayed 4 years in the American Internatiol School of Bucharest (AISB). Sorry is there are mistakes in my post.. So which one do you prefer?
