From Alaska to New Zealand, English is spoken all around the world, and the language’s regional peculiarities are as diverse as it is widespread. For example, the British may be confused by American “football”, but no more than Americans are by the British “biscuit”. Yet despite all of our linguistic differences, we get along great with one another. The English-speaking community tends to be a rather relaxed bunch, and friendliness isn’t just a Canadian virtue.
While native speakers may be able to quickly make sense of local dialects, others want to play it safe.
If you’re planning to go on holiday on 7/12, should you pack a bathing suit or a winter jacket? Depending on the linguistic variety, your long-awaited holiday could be in July or December, and you don’t want to arrive to any unpleasant surprises, do you? But one thing is the same everywhere: no matter what time of year it is, a “mobile phone” is always “handy”, not the other way around (as the German language may have you believe)!
