As a native British English speaker, I’m always intrigued by expressions that American English speakers use. Sometimes it takes me a while to figure out what they mean! To get started though, here are some common words that are different in Britain and the USA:

Petrol (UK) = Gas (USA) English courses in England

Pavement (UK) = Sidewalk (USA)

Angry (UK) = Mad (USA)

Autumn (UK) = Fall (USA)

Rubbish (UK) = Trash (USA)

Tap (UK) = Faucet (USA)

Trousers (UK) = Pants (USA)
