Ever Wonder Why Brits and Americans Sound Different Despite Speaking the Same Language?

Take the word ‘router‘ —Americans say ‘rowter‘ while Brits say ‘rooter’! 🇬🇧🇺🇸

Another example?

Herb’—Americans say ‘erb’ while Brits emphasise the ‘h‘.

Imagine the confusion! An American asking for the ‘rowter’ in a London office, or a British chef mentioning ‘herbs’ to an American colleague.

These differences add flavour to our conversations, reminding us of the richness of our diverse world.

Let’s keep learning and celebrating these linguistic variations!
