Yeah but America is bigger than England.
=D
Also, even though Canada is "British" it's still our hat.

This whole British Vs. American English argument is ridiculus. English is a mutt of a language with bits nicked from absolutely everywhere. US and Brit English aren't different because Americans `changed our language`, they`re different because language is constantly evolving and the two have been separated for hundreds of years. Think of them like chimps and humans; they share a common ancestor, but have evolved to different, yet still similar, points. Have no other Brits out there read Shakespeare? Clearly we`ve changed the English language over the last few centuries too.

Not all of us Brits are pompous dicks who think we`re better than you, honestly!

Also, I didn`t even realise people learning English were taught to differentiate between the two types of English. I`ve got used to people learning to speak English with an American accent.
