If you have been studying English for a while, then you will have noticed that American and British speakers sometimes use different words, spellings and phrases.

Rachel Smith runs a popular channel on YouTube called Rachel’s English, where she helps students improve their use of American English.

She recently produced a video together with Kaplan International Colleges at YouTube’s studios in Manhattan.

Before filming started, Rachel visited a Kaplan English school in New York to meet students from around the world. (Kaplan has three schools in the city).
