But I didn't like learning Spanish or Catalan either, because these two languages didn't sound good to me and their grammar was too different from my language, so it was difficult for me to learn them. Instead, I loved learning English, and as a result, it was easier for me to learn it, because it sounded really good and its grammar was easier than Spanish and Catalan for me. From then, I have improved my English progressively. In addition, last summer I met some British and I had the opportunity to practise with them. I also met a German too and he spoke American English, because his teacher had taught him it, so there were words that I couldn't understand. From then, I’ve been curious about American English. Actually, when I knew that I had to choose a topic, I was really worried about it because I had never done it in my life, and what’s more, my Spanish and Catalan were really bad. But finally this topic came to my mind, which was motivating and interesting for me. So I thought I was a really lucky girl. __________________________________________________________________ BRITISH ENGLISH VERSUS AMERICAN ENGLISH 4
