    Talking US English or UK English

    I have a query. What kind of English does Mexico follow? Is it US English?

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****

    Good morning, Dreamwarrior.

    (1) Since the United States of Mexico borders the United States of

    America, I believe that it is correct to believe that Mexican learners

    follow American English.

    (2) If you go online and read English-language newspapers in Mexico, you

    will probably find American spellings, use of prepositions, etc.

    (3) Many Latin-American people attend ESL schools here in the States.

    (a) For example, thousands of people attend a famous ESL school in

    downtown Los Angeles where only "American" is taught.

    Have a nice day!
