BRITISH AND AMERICAN ENGLISH

Read the texts below and underline the words/phrases in American English. What
are their British English equivalents? 

A. I work a lot during the week. That's why I love the weekends so much. On the weekend, I try to do as little as possible. Sometimes I go downtown and hang out with my friends.

We usually grab a sandwich and fries at the local diner. I prefer to stay at home
and watch my favorite TV programs. Actually, I avoid leaving my apartment, if I can!

On the weekend → At the weekend
downtown → city centre
fries → chips
diner → cafeteria / restaurant
favorite → favourite
programs → programmes
apartment → flat

B.
Last week I did the stupidest thing... I lost my cell phone! It was a nice day, so I decided to
walk home from work, rather than take the subway. I was almost home when I realized that my phone was gone. I went to a gas station to use the pay phone, and I called my cell phone to see
if someone would answer. A man picked up the phone! He said he had found my phone on the sidewalk in front of the local drugstore. Lucky for me, I guess. Anyway, I'm going to be more careful from now on!

subway → underground
realized → realised
gas station → petrol station
cell phone → mobile phone
sidewalk → pavement
drugstore → pharmacy, chemist's


C.
Tom Fry is your typical high school student with a very busy schedule. He's on his school's soccer team, and he loves going out with his friends. They usually go to the mall or play a game of
soccer together. He gets good grades in his classes, especially History and English, but
he hates math! He also works part-time in the evenings when he doesn't have soccer
practice. Le's going to start college in the fall, and he wants to major in Art History.
