    About North American English

    I would like to know if this website is open for the North American English, I know that website is based in Britain but no matter what I would be open to understand British English.

    The ENLs and a number of ESLs at this website handle both BrE and NaE with aplomb, Stromgol.

    We're open for any variant of English. The site is based in Britain by accident of birth.

    No matter what as long as I can practise my written English that's the most important thing. When I went to New York city, some people told me, I sound as a German when I speak English somebody else told me I sound as a Russian but most people think I sound as an American.
