AWA British vs. US English [#permalink] New post 17 Apr 2007, 01:42
I was wondering, since the essays are graded by a computer and US readers, whether it matters if the essays are written in British or US English. There are quite a number of spelling differences as well as differences in idiom; they might erroneously identify correctly spelled words as misspelled words.

What are your thoughts on this :?:

If you can, try to write words in US English style.
However, as posted above, I doubt it is a problem.

Thnx for the replies!

I indeed think adaptation is better than confrontation, so I'll write in US English.
