Guten Abend,

and welcome to www.englischde.com. This website is written in Standard English, which is used in English textbooks. Origins of Standard English are derived from a "triangle" made of London, Oxford and Cambridge. Of course, nowadays you can choose from piles of books in American English, but textbooks in British English, we can say, dominate in bookshops. Certainly grammar might be slightly different in some areas, such as USA, Australia, Ireland, South Africa or India. However, if you open a newspaper or a magazine from any part of the world you will understand and you should not find any significant differences.
www.timesonline.co.uk - UK
www.nytimes.com - USA
www.heraldsun.news.com.au - AUS
www.unison.ie - Ireland
www.telegraphindia.com - India
www.mg.co.za - South Africa

Although written English in various parts of the world differ slightly, we cannot say the same about the pronunciation. Check out significant differences in pronunciation, accent and intonation.
www.bbc.co.uk/radio - BBC radio (British accent)
www.wnyc.org/news/ - New York radio (American accent)
www.2gb.com - Sydney radio (Australian accent)

Written pronunciation on this website is so-called (RP) Received Pronunciation. This kind of pronunciation, British English, is used as a standard in the Teaching of English. It is used in textbooks, media and broadcasting.

English used on this website is British English (BrE). Text written in American English, will be marked by abbreviation (AmE).

We are continuously working on EnglischDe.com. Last update was on 15.6.
