Skill up your English: British English & American English

Take your English up a level by learning the fundamental differences between British English & American English!

This course is for you if you:

> have a real interest in the English language and you want to dive deeper into both British & American

About this course

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 (from both the UK and the USA). 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 course with a vocabulary builder.

What you will learn

  • Main differences between these languages: 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

What is the activation project?

Do I receive feedback and guidance on this course?

Yes! You’ll get feedback from our qualified teachers on your work throughout the course and also on your final assignment in the activation project

Can this course help me at work?

Yes. The content of this course is general English, not business English vocabulary. However, if you work regularly with British and American speakers, this course can really help your comprehension and speaking skills.

Is there a certificate?
