Oh yes I agree, while a debate could shift from US to UK users.
As a side note, when I moved over from the US to EU at the age of 18, I meet my best friend, a UK native living in Spain, he on the contrary to myself, grew up in Spain and spoke perfect Spanish. But when he would speak to me in english (UK English), I would have a hard time understanding what he was saying Iam a native Spanish who grew up in Canada/US.
Although my english at that time was in top shape native almost like, I did have issues understanding most of the UK folks I meet in the Spanish turist town I lived in at the time, wont even mention Irish or Scottish folks I meet, and by that I mean the same hard time understanding. With time you get used to it, but yes, there is quite a differeance between UK and US English.
Not only that, I have noticed over the years that American English has evolved quite alot since I went to school in the 80´s. The phrasing and word use has been very much enriched since then. Have a look at some of the old Avalon Hill game manuals of the 80´s and/or watch older movies fron the 80´s and one can tell how much it has evolved. So, if your not in constant conversations with the current phrasing/word use of todays Americans, it´s most likely you will sound like you learned English in some foregin country. (simple English)
Ok, I hope the grammar class is over, beacuse the "spell checker" we had on the web some time ago moved to work for Garmin on there GPS devices
Well, if we all spelled correctly, the Grammarly app would be out of business! Iam not buying though!
