    In AE we usually say vacation and in BE they usually say holiday. I'm not sure if they use day off in the UK, but perhaps Tdol will comment on that.

    We certainly do use day off in the uk. In fact I had a day off this week.
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.
