Great information. I get let lots of new knowledge after reading that posting to know the differences between american and british. Well, I think, during studying at university most of my lecturers tend to use american, and automatically it influences me then. But then, it doesn’t mean that I consider that american is better, and easier or in contrast. In Addition, sometimes as an EFL student, I got difficulty to catch what the foreigners said when they used slang word or slang language.
In one occasion, when I was at an american lecturer, I asked: I think your water is almost running out, she said: you mean, almost all? . the she explained that, we can say almost all for something which is almost empty, or in bahasa we can say ‘hampir habis’.
