Differences Between American and British English By Kenneth Beare While there are certainly many more varieties of English, American English and British English are the two varieties that are taught in most ESL/EFL programs.

Kahoot + politik = sant Såhär inför valet har vi på engelskan jobbat en hel del med hur valet i Sverige, UK och USA går till. Vi har stött och blött många återkommande ord, kikat på massa olika videoklipp och pratat högt och lågt om bland annat demokrati, grundlagar och rösträtt. Eleverna har även fått titta på likheter och skillnader mellan Sverige, UK och USA. Under arbetets gång har vi, inte helt oundvikligt, stött på en hel del nya (och en del mindre nya) ord. Vill ni testa att köra den vi gjorde kan ni klicka på bilden nedan eller HÄR.

Forskare: Tonåringar borde inte börja skolan före klockan 10 - Veckorevyn Ingen i åldrarna 10 till 18 år borde börja skolan före klockan 08.30. Och ännu bättre vore det om ingen började förrän efter klockan 10.00, skriver sajten New Scientist. Forskning visar nämligen att tonåringar mår bra av sovmorgnar. – De uppvisade fördelarna är många och inkluderar bättre sömn, mindre dagtrötthet och förbättringar såväl akademiskt som hälsomässigt, humörmässigt och säkerhetsmässigt, säger Judith Owens som är sömnspecialist vid Children's National Health System i Washington DC, skriver New Scientist.
