1. "Where do you live?" my teacher asked me. (double quotation marks)
2. 'Where do you live?' my teacher asked me. (single quotation mark)
Where I live, pupils are taught to use double quotation marks ( " ).
I was told by a friend of mine that the single quotation marks is the British way while the double quotation marks are the American convention. Is she correct?
Thanks in advance.

I have a lot of crime fiction books, and those published in the UK use single quotation marks whilst those published in the USA use double quotes.
