    Greeting

    Dear teachers,

    When I was a beginner we learned from the textbook greetings such as 'Lovely day, isn't it?", 'Nasty day" etc. I have seen some American films and found nobody says so. Is it the difference between American English and British English?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Yes. "Lovely day, isn't it" is very rarely used in American English.
