• Hi! And welcome to my English v US English spelling Test. I'll be testing basic spelling theory and knowledge to determine your true Spelling nationality. Britain and America are two nations divided by a common language. We invented it (OK, borrowed bits of it from many other languages - but still it's ours! It's got our name on it!) and you took it across the Atlantic and have since amended it for your own use. This test will show whether you're a true Brit or a Yankee Doodle Dandy when it comes to expressing the English language on paper. Enjoy!
