i can't tell you HOW MANY americans i've come across who want to be idiot grammar nazis and stubbornly insist that i need to learn some english because i spell it "colour." pisses me the fuck off that they act so up there and think that they know everything there is to know about english when the original language came from europe. when will some of them realise (yes, i use "realise" and other "z" words with an "s") that america isn't at the center of everything?

i grew up with the british spellings and even though i've been going to school in the US for awhile, i've never been able to get used to the american spellings. the words just looks odd and seems really out of place to me.

i was genuinely surprised though, to find that none of my american professors/TAs have ever corrected my british spellings or made an issue of it, or have even corrected my grammar. ever. so i find it twice as funny and three times as annoying that regular kids will try to "correct" my english.

Growing up in America, I learned how to spell it "color"...though after watching a lot of BBC shows, I've learned to respect their spelling.

I use the British spellings! I was born and raised in South Africa, which used to be colonized by the English and the Dutch, so I learnt British English, obviously... plus Americans suck! They're so rude and their accents are so annoying. But British accents are even more annoying and they have bad teeth! I think I'm lucky, cuz South African accents are somewhere in between, just a little closer to English accents, accept I've been living in a different country for a long time so the only English I ever hear is American television and my parents, and my dad is Portuguese so his accent is even stranger than mine, so I have my own weird accent that doesn't really belong to any country in particular anymore. O.o I sound South African and Australian and British all at the same time but I pronounce most things like an American, so I just sound kinda STRANGE...

I spell it colour, but both are correct so I never understood why people get so bent out of shape about it. Same with favourite/favorite.
