In my understanding, the word instead of 'elevator' in British English is 'lift' and the word for 'pants' is 'trousers'. Is this right? And are there any other words which are often picked up as the examples?

hi all i am new here and i want to practice speaking english , what can i do

Hello Vishaka Madubashini,

That's a very broad question - there are differences in vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar, though the differences in pronunciation are probably smaller than the differences between different regions within just British English, and the differences in grammar are relatively minor.  Both British and American speakers have few or no problems understanding one another.

I think you can find more details on this in this episode of our 'How to...' series.

Best wishes,

Why is there only 5 questions? The more questions the better :-)

I agree. 5 questions only are not enough. There should be at least 10 if not more.
