Hello sunsetlover,

As the British Council we generally focus on British English, as you say. We have considered including some examples of the kind you suggest but it can make the pages rather cluttered, with multiple alternatives in many places.

We have several pages addressing the differences between British and American English:

Hi teacher, It seems there are some wrong pictures in this lesson(Streets and Roads).I mean those aren't matched with their names. Thanks

Hello mdaivid,

I've just completed the task myself and the words and pictures match correctly. Which one did you think was wrong?
