  • Hi I'm Georgina from BBC Learning English.

  • In today's lesson,

  • we're going to look at 3 differences between

  • American English and British English spelling.

  • Words which end with '–er' in American English,

  • often end in '–re' in British English.

  • For example:

  • 'I live in the center of town.'

  • changes to 'centre'.

  • Normally, verbs which end in '–ize' in American English

  • can be spelt in British English with either '–ize' or '–ise'.

  • For example:

  • 'Can you organize the meeting?',

  • changes to 'organise' (or 'organize').

  • Sometimes words with '–or' in American English

  • can be spelt in British English using '–our'.

  • For example:

  • 'What's your favorite color?'

  • changes to 'favourite' 'colour'.

  • It doesn't matter whether you use

  • American English or British English spelling.

  • Just make sure you use one or the other.
