About this module

This course will help you understand the fundamental differences between American and British English and as a consequence help you understand better and acquire new vocabulary.

We’re going to reflect on our own experiences & do a lot of comprehension practice (for both Br and US English). We’ll also learn how to improve our receptive listening skills.

We’ll then read an article together full of native-level rich vocabulary.

We end the module with a vocabulary builder.

What you will learn

– Main differences between British and American English (lexical, phonetic, grammar and spelling)
– How being aware of these differences can improve your comprehension
– Self study method: receptive listening
– New vocabulary from comprehension boost and article
