    Question canceled or cancelled

    French is my main language, I am learning English right now, and many times I came across the word canceled or cancelled spelled differently so can somebody tell me for sure which one is the right one?

    Both are correct. In British English if a verb ends in single 'L' (provided that it doesn't have two vowels before it as in seal, feel etc.), we double it when making it present and past participle such as label, labelled, labelled lebelling, fulfil fulfilled fulfilled fulfilling. Whereas in American English we don't double it. (Fulfill is an exception in Am Eng)
