    ‘It’s nice to meet you’: Greta Thunberg and David Attenborough speak over Skype

    It’s very nice to meet you. It’s an honour to meet you. I’m very flattered that you should say that. Thank you very much.

    American English vs British English spelling

    Hi I’m Georgina from BBC Learning English. In today’s lesson, we’re going to look at 3 differences between American English and British English spelling.
