    In my conclusion I prefer American English, because is more easy the most greater movies are in American English and the british English is with all respect more farm that the other language

  • Walter Singer

    I most understand American English than British one, I feel more confident with american accent and pronunciation. On th other hand British English sounds kind of elegant I don’t know why but it does for me. By the way, I enjoy the most American English

  • Totally agree! Students make a big deal about choosing one or the other when there really aren’t that many differences. Keep up the great work AJ

  • Nicky

    British English is the real stuff and it is sooo much prettier. There is beauty in it, it is poetic. ..none of the ‘hot potato ‘ stuff .

  • Nasreldin Edris

    I like American English, iam join with it

  • Ali Liberalman

    i more like to learn american because there’s nothing like NYC and i love it ..

  • fredy

    I definitely agree. You are a great teacher, Never give up please. You can´t imagine how much you have helped us improving our learning. God bless you

  • Helen

    I disagree. I mean, if you are going to States or Australia forgood, it’s only natural to learn their way. But in other cases learning English to me (and I’m not alone with this opinion) is learning classic English, of course. Apart from fact that there are many “englishes” in Britain itself. But there’s a standart.

    your answer about which one is better to learn English American or Brittish was the correct one although we both know that there are differences, for instance take the word favor wich is written as in spanisch and favour in brittish English,so there many difference like in spanish.

  • Glen

    G’day AJ, I was rather interested in your comment about which is the better, American or British English? As an Australian and one who has lived in the UK as well as the US there is no better teacher of the “spoken word of English than a person from England. Matter of fact my brother who is a Banking Senior Executive recently returned from Myanmar (Burma) on business and after meeting with Government officials was asked the question, How is that when you speak (English) we understand what you’re saying but when we have Americans, Canadians, Australians, Irish and Scots their English is so hard for us to understand. Of course the explanation was, “their Accents”. The advice given to the Government was, We’ll bring you people without accents to teach you all how to speak and understand Real English.

  • Imre Toth

    Why don’t you give some examples: an american and after
    and english pronounce of the same sentence of your every
    day conversation ?!I’m bumped out untill you show us some such sentences!!

  • fati

    Thanks AJ for you and other teachers

  • Moysser

    I wanna mix them

    So amazing if I can mixing

  • Nick Greece

    Because I live in Europe I would prefer British English. I do not know if this is correct. I am not member of conversation club.

  • ibrhim alhumaini

    Thank You brother

  • Raquel Athayde

    I already believed that!

    I’ve studied the both for years and, it’s not a problem even I prefer the American accent. My first contact for speaking English was with people who came from USA. Maybe, that’s why I prefer AmE. Any way, I love speaking different languages.

    🙂 Enjoy learning English.

    Thank you for your excellent video!
