English, as we all know, is considered as the universal language. It is spoken all over the world. However, you will also notice that people all over the world are using different types of English. Let’s take a closer look at these two popular types: UK and US English.
Even if both types of English are widely used, there are some differences that will be worth knowing to identify the type of English that you are using.
US English is what we know as the American English which is widely used in the United States. UK English, on the other hand, is known as the British English. Some also call it the BBC English since it is the English used by British reporters, and another name for it is the Queen’s English.
In terms of vocabulary, some words in US English may mean something different in UK English. For example, the word biscuit for the British means baked sweet or savoury cake that is hard when baked and softens over time; while in the US it is a quick bread served with savoury foods.
With regards to pronunciation, American English is more nasal. Stress is also another difference to consider. Just like in the word princess, British stress the second syllable while Americans stressed the first.
Grammar approach also poses some difference between the two. US English makes use of simple past tense in situations where British will use the present perfect tense. This sometimes creates confusion since the rules and use of grammar is different between the two.
Whether you prefer to use US or UK English, you have to familiarize yourself with how each one is used to ensure that messages are sent clearly.
1.US English is identified as American English while UK English is more popularly known as British English.
2.US English may stress a word on the first syllable while UK English will normally put stress on the second syllable.
3.US English adopts the –og on some word endings instead of the –ogue that UK English prefers.
4.US English make use of simple past tense in sentences while UK English will use present perfect tense.
I had notice the backs of his hands as they lay on his knees in the firelight and they had seemed rather white and dine; but seeing them now close to me, I realised that they were rather coarse - broad, with squat fingers. Strange to say, there were hairs in the centre of the palms. His nails were long and fine and cut to a sharp point.

At the beginning of time humans communicated throught body signs, signals and sounds in the open space and in the environment.
Later on it changed into letters, oral language, written messages and books Then the phone was invented, fax, up to the new mobile phone, then the computer with the Internet and wireless devices we have today.
At the present means of communication are changing rapidly every day more and is common to all people because they do not know how to live without being able to communicate and it is very useful to get in touch with relatives abroad .
Today the news tell us about things that happen worldwide from Canada to India or fron Spain to Japan.
Formerly the news was told orally or through written communications in public places, such as churches, town hall, etc...
At present, how to communicate the news is very diverse, with new technologies such as computer and the Internet it is easier and faster through e-mail, videos or photos.
They also continue to use more traditional methods such as newspapers, magazines, or following the oral tradition on the street.
In conclusion, the news has been and is currently a very important means of communication between people and us more than about person to person.

Mobile phones are only to be used by grown-up people that they are more responsible than children are. In my opinion, the callon mobile phones in young children is very worrying, because I don´t think it is healthy for children to keep on talking for long on their mobile phone.
In conclusion, the of mobile phone should not be recomended to be used by children because they are not ready to handle it.
I liked the book and because is fiction. I have mentioned this book, as it was recomended to me. If anyone is interested I can loend it to you.
A bicycle occupies less space than a car.You can forget petrol, the ITV, the taxes and saves money in insurances and in repairs.The bicycle reduces the number of cars and reduces the pollution.It makes you feel free, and independent. You can also forget traffic jams and problems of parking.The bicycle is faster than the car in short urban distances.It is more efficientb that the car in energy terms, consumes 12times less than a full car to carry a person.
This would help to be more ecological.
There are people who use movile phones to stay and lead to aggresion toward other.
The are people who shouldn't be allowed to use a mobile phone.
Another problem is that children also have mobile phones, when they should not.
I use the movile phone every day. I don`t call every day but it has saved me from several difficulties. A mobile phone is a useful tool, and necessary only when we use the mobile phone in a responsible way.
In conclusion, children need not to use a mobile phone until they are older.
I was talking to my friends, however, while we were walking I got a very bad news: my dog was missing!
Then, I rang with my phone home, but anyone answered the phone.
I was very angry and I took my mobile phone and I threw it against the floor. Two hors later my dog appeared near my house, but I had to buy a new mobile phono, because mine had been destroyed.
First when parents know where their sons are (in the park, at the cinema,...), they feel confident, although, children under the age of 13 shoulden't go out with friends until very late.
Another advantages, for example, can be if a child is stolen he can phone his parents more easily. I believe that a child don't need mobile phone.
In the evening. I will take photographs and I will go shopping, if I could.
I'm here now, but I need a lot of money and I have to learn the language well. I want to go with my friends or with my family
We will be going to the Malaga, and will be walking along the beach and swiming.
We will go on excursions, and make a lot of photograps.
We will go to visit museums and exibitions, but we also want to rest a few days to disconnect from the routine.
When we finish the holyday in beach, we will go back home.
The next week, I will travel with my boyfriend to Holland, on Monday we will stay in the hotel and at night we will walk along the streetThe next day we would visit a museum and Anne Frank house too.
If we were rich, we would travel by boat along the city canals, but I don't speak Dutch lenguage. One friend told me that Amsterdam is a very beautiful and very enjoyable town. Amsterdam has alot of bridges and many street markets for flowers.

It is an easy to read book
The disadvantages are that you will pay every month and it will change in years, you can not get new furniture if you like.
If something is broken you have to call the owner to be replaced.
In conclusion, the rented flat is when you go to live with friends or with your parther for a few months.
I was scared, because all my family was in bed. I turned on the kitchen light and I was astonisted, two people were dressed in black, pointing at me with a carving knife.
I screamed, my family woke up, and the burglars took advantage of the situatio to scape.
They didn´t steal much. Only two jewels and a tv set.
But, as I could see their faces, I went to the police to report this damage.
After three days the burglars were fortunately all arrested.

The water falls down the river carriying the melted snow.
At the back of the landscape the pine forest appears with a few bushes near the river.
There is an enclosure next to the river.
It is a nice winter landscape of the Sierra de Navacerrada in Madrid.
The water of the stream goes down a long the vallery fed by the snow of the mountain slope.
It is my favorite place, because it is my city and I love it, although noisy and peple wak with a lot of stress. The city has got shopping malls, theaters, cinemas, museums and exhibitions in them, so you can choose among a great variety to have a great time in it.
In my view, more young people do several jobs to help the society.
Obviously, when the military service was compulsory, every young men should go to the army, and they served as soldiers to his country. Based on what I have seen and heard, everyone should do the military service, as they seem to be happy when they remember that experience.So, I strongly believe that the government should impose military service again, that way young people would have fun, but learn a job , and would enjoy their military service in a modern way.
In conclusion, young people should do voluntary work only in case it is optional for them.
For this reason, I would advise every one that they should recycle costantly.

I wouldn't like to go abroad, because I don't speak foreign languages, but if I spoke English well, I would got to USA on holiday, and I would visit New York and I would take a lot of photograps, which I would probably upload in my flickr.
I would only stay ther for 2 weeks.
I don't like the food as it very American, lets say, junk food. I'd like to change Euros into Dollars, and I would climb up to the Empire State Building. I would go to Los Angeles, California, then I'd visit Miami...and the Northern States.
But I should go with company. I need to start a new life and spend a time in Miami beach. I'd like to work in the Motown Records, and drive a Harley Davison.
I would like to go to Graceland in Memphis, to visit the house where Elvis used to live until his death. There we could see his grave, as it is the second most visited house after the White House.
I also want to go abroad to take pictures of different landscapes from Canadá, and North America, but I wouldn´t go to countries where they do not respect women rights, as they have repressive politics. I only would go abroad on holiday for one moth or two.
I don´t like to be away from family and friends a lot of time, because they are essential to me and I need to be near my home.I only would go abroad on holiday as a tourist, to enjoy landscapes and cities in Europe and all over North America.
