I’m just wondering if there is a way to find out what accent the English lessons are in without having to go through them all.
I have some students using LingQ and some of them prefer listening to British English, where others prefer American English and Canadian English.
Is there a way to filter the English lessons to these accents? If not, do you think it would be a good idea to do this?
If I see the following words, I consider the writer to be British.
Labour instead of labor
Neighbour instead of neighbor
Urbanisation instead of urbanization
The ground floor
Go to the Library. Click on Browse the Whole Library. Search by the accent of your choice.
If the provider is skyblueteapot they are British English.
Thanks for the replies everyone!
I don’t think it’s so important for the learners. English is existing now in different shapes: Brit. English, Am. English, Can. English, Austr. English - but they all are only various forms of a modern lively English.
The differences are interesting first of all for the philologists and some finical students.
I don’t know about others but for me it matters. I love the british accent and that’s what I like the lessons to be in!
By the way… we need more british in the library!
