    Do you agree..?

    I have rencently read that ..today, British English has become so thoroughly Americanized that one has to be really careful when differentiating between the two varieties of English....

    What is your opinion - as a British English speaker or native - on that ?

    Thank you.

    hahaha....well each style of English adopts terms from the other. As a Canadian our English borrows heavily from both sides. But I doubt very much that British English pronunciation will ever be the same as American pronunciation and certainly the slang of each country is vastly different.

    It's good to hear that English has graduated.
