Joanna Szőke


 Jo has been teaching English in Hungary and in the UK for several years. She spent her first couple of years as a kid in Canada, then moved with her parents to Hungary where she has lived ever since. Jo has a BA in American studies and Russian, and an MA in English Theoretical Linguistics. She is actively involved in teacher training and a regular presenter at teacher training conferences. Apart from her interest in teaching, she loves all kinds of sport, especially dangerous ones, such as her all-time favourite, downhill mountain biking.


American and British English

Event type: Workshop
Facilitator: Joanna Szoke
Minimum age: 12+
Level: Elementary / Pre-intermediate + / Intermediate / Upper-intermediate
Time: 60 min.
* On demand contents, level and timing can be tailored to groups’ needs.

Movies, songs, games, tv series – some say this, some say that. You learn one thing but then you don’t understand the other. The English language has as many faces as countries where it’s spoken. We’ll look at the main differences between American and British English words, pronunciation and slang in a playful way. You’ll learn everything you need to be the cool kid round the block, who knows what it means to be gutted, bummed, knackered, chuffed or hyped, and someone who knows that chips are chips but not always, because they are sometimes French fries and sometimes crisps.
