The History of English–American English

This fun video clip explains some of the “history” of American English from a British perspective. It’s a great listening exercise if you want to practice listening to an English accent (warning: he does speak fairly fast so you may want to watch this a few times) or just to have an amusing start to your day.

Don’t forget to write down any vocabulary that you might hear and ask your teacher (or classmates) about them in your next class. A good way to practice listening and vocabulary for your PEP!!
