    I'd like to speak both cos I can speak American English when I am in North American, and I can also speak British English when I am in UK. If you'd like me to choose one of them, then I'll choose Amercan English cos I think American English widely uses in the world, one of the reason is that most of people like watching hollywood movies, almost all hollywood movies speak in American English, seldomly speak in British English. For paperwork or writing the essay, I'd like to choose British English, because most of the famous books and magazines are using British English and most of famous dictionaries also came from UK, like Oxford, Longman, Cambridge,Collins COBUILD.....

    I would reccomend Brittish english, by far. As it is seen as a far more grammatically correct language, in comparison to American english.

    All in all; Brittish English..

    I want to speak both American and British English fluently because I would like to believe that I have a voracious appetite for learning languages. If you want me to choose one, that's British in terms of speaking, and even if I come to speak that fluently, I will want to listen to American accent well.
