Do you use American or British English?
The Culips hosts speak Canadian English (Andrew and Morag) and American English (Suzanne). The differences between Canadian and American English are very small and it is often difficult for native speakers of English to tell the difference between standard Canadian and standard American English.
We believe Canadian English is the best English dialect to learn for the following reasons:
- Extremely similar pronunciation to standard American English
- Geographic proximity to the USA means Canadians are very knowledgeable about American culture, history, and media
- Historical connection with the UK means Canadians are knowledgeable about the varieties of English spoken in the Commonwealth (The UK and Australia)
- Canadian English contains elements of both American and UK English which makes it the ideal variety to learn for students of English
