Ok OK ok!!! Stop your whining people I'm NOT so saying American English is another fricking language. So get off your high horse and read my question without jumping to conclusions. Thankyou

The question is:

You know in British English and American English there are terms that are slightly different eg. Street light vs Street lamp or footpath vs sidewalk, etc would other europeans find the British terms much closer to their ones in their own language over American terms?

Probably we could have examples from non natives. =)

Love Greg (and NO I never been to France)

PS: My approach to the stuffed up spelling and grammar is due to my young age and the stupid public school system.
