• The Rain Check.


    If you are a native English speaker lining within the “Anglosphere” you have an interesting choice of languages presented to you – all or which you can understand! Of course, this is because American English, Australian English, British English, Canadian English and New Zealand English are all basically the same. It’s just that there are some different words or phrases in each. Given the size of it’s economy, it’s population and the geopolitical status the USA’s variant of the tongue is the dominant one.
