PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Let students have vocabulary fun, spelling fun, and literature fun as they examine differences in American and British English.

As they mature, students often read material published in England or other parts of the U.K. This 5-page reproducible activity helps students understand differences in British and American English. It begins by noting and giving example of differences in

spelling
American English liter and British English litre

punctuation
American English “I’m here.” and British English ‘I’m here’.

pronunciation
American English schedule=sked-yule and British English schedule=shed-yule

Then students explore vocabulary differences in British English and American English. In a 2-page activity, they use context clues to “translate” British English words into American English.

Example:
The gauge in the car tells me I’m about to run out of petrol.
British English = petrol
American English = __________________________
(Answer: gasoline)

An answer key is included.

This classroom-tested activity is suitable for middle school, high school, and college classes. Created by Susan Thurman.
