    Any time you like.
    The only difference is that you are more likely to hear people use "towards" in Britain than in the US.

    Re: toward or towards

    I have heard that towards refers to direction where toward reflects "with respect to" or "on the verge of".
    I walked towards the car.
    We are working toward a common goal.
    In common usage, I think that they are more used interchangeably.

    see you later
