    Don't freak out, pal, but you're pretty much speaking British RIGHT NOW!

    I did hear about a sign posted in a store in London. It read: English spoken here, American understood
    I don't know how anyone could teach you on line, but there are sites that will translate whatever you type into them. Even one for dialects.
    Here is one for translations: Click Here
    And click HERE the one that will translate dialects for you.

    It's fun.
    Regular English:

    I was walking my dog when I met a very handsome man who aksed me out on a date. I told him to forget it as I was happily married.

    In Scouse it reads like this:

    Ay wuz walk'n me dog whun ay met a dead 'andsome feller oo aksed me out onna date. ay terld 'im ter forget it as ay wuz 'appily married

    In Yorkshire Chicken Run, it reads like this:

    Ah wor walkin mi dog when ah met eur reeight cumly bloke whoa aksed mee ''art on eur date. ah towd 'im ta getget it as ah wor 'appily wed.

    I better stop now

    Why British or Dutch? They are so different?

    What's that saying about England and the United States being allies separated by a common language?

    I don't know what language you think that is, but it's about 4 of them, with some "lingo" thrown in for good measure.

    News flash: British is English with a different accent. Take a Berlitz course to learn Dutch.
