I don't know, but there's something in BrE (let's shrink) that souds weird to me (but I have to confess that Morissey is making my mind about it. hahahaha).

But here's the deal: even prefering (?) AmE, one of my dreams is to travel around the Europe, so... I should prefer BrE.
Am I going to have problems with that? I mean, with the fact that I think BrE weird? hahaha

Cya :)


Laryssa,

Please see my reply to Ravenna, near the top of page 2 of this topic, with reference to having trouble with British English. Then please consider the changes I made to your post in this rewrite, and let me know what you think of it.

"I surely prefer American English because that's the variation which I irrefutably have had more contact with. Its pronunciation is quite easier for me than British English, which is due to having more contact with American English.

I don't know why, but there's something in British English that sounds weird to me, however I must confess that Morissey is helping me make my mind up about it.

I have a concern, eventhough I prefer American English, one of my dreams is to travel around Europe, and I am worried that I may have problems while in Europe since I learned American English and think British English is weird."

I hope that this posting and any future postings help you better understand English.

Hey, Bill.

I saw your reply to Ravenna, it was very well explained.

As I'm forced to study English by myself, my knowledge is based in what I watch, listen and read, using Google Translator, and wonderful sources like this site and sometimes asking my friends and my teacher in high school. It's working fine untill now, but think it's not enough and, unfortunately, there's nothing I can do at this moment to change this situation, because I'm a teenager and I cannot get a job.

However, thank you again. And believe me, you're helping a lot everyone here. :D

Laryssa,

Just one suggestion this time: Your last sentence should read:

"And believe me, you're helping everyone here a lot."

Otherwise very nicely done.

I prefer to learn American English. In my opinion, it sounds better and has a better accent.
British English, of course!

Specially from the north of England (and Scotland too, hehe). That it's included slangs, obscene words, cultural aspects, intonation, accent, grammatical style... whatever!

I want to learn both! Because for me it doesn't matter if it is AmE or BrE, I like the English language in general, every little thing from both varieties, I know this is crazy, but I don't care if I get "a little bit" confused by them! :D
I prefer the american english just because I know better the accent and it's the most popular english.
Both, because the language english is speaked for differents people around the word
and the limitation isn´t well.

If I may rewrite it...

Both, because the English language is spoken by many different people around the world and this limitation isn't good.
There are Brazilian, Chinese, American, British, and many other ways of speaking English. It's important to know the maximum of these "Englishs".

Bye for now

I don't have any preference about this. I like both. In thuth, I don't no what's the real difference between American and British English. I think the pronounce and grammar are a little bit different. Is it something more?
