   And I like American.
Each to their own ;-) American English nowadays is even more popular, but I like the way the RP-speakers speak.

 Regards, Vladimir

     To vis604. Which of the two variants of English do you prefer?

I prefer the British version of English and usually try to speak in the way as close to RP as possible (the Queen's English).

Regards, Vladimir

Wonderful, do you know any other significant differences between these two?

:-) I think, Irina was talking about somewhat different things (i.e. particularities of spoken versions of the languages or something like that).

To my mind, one of the main differences is that American English (I consider its GA version as the most recognised one) is "rhotic", whilst British (in its RP-version) is "non-rhotic" - it means that Americans usually pronounce the letter "R" in all positions, including the ones before consonants or at the end of words), while RP-speakers pronounce it only before vowels.

There are also a lot of differences in vocabulary (some of them are slight and can sometimes be neglected, others are much more significant).
Just compare "pants" and "trousers" or the way the word "car"is pronounced  etc..

Of course, the complete list of those differences has not been made in this message :-)))

Regards, Vladimir

Some facts illustrating difference between British and American English. First of all both these languages sound differently. Often Americans don't say each word separately. They say several words together. Americans may say "I dunno" instead of "I don't know". Or they may say"Whaddya say?" instead of "What did you say?" The British are more careful in their speech.

How do you think - it's easier to speak proper Russian or English? What's common in this two languages?..
    These two languages are both rich and gave the world great writers, poets and
 playwrights. Which of them is easier to speak? We are born to Russian, aren't we? The answer to the question is evident!

     No pain, no gain. Exactly! If you want to be a success, you mu st work hard. Everybody wants to speak English  properly, but very few people have enough energy and drive  to study it patiently. You be the one!
