Have you ever made a social faux pas or mistake by using the wrong word in English? I have ! Have a listen to the video and hear what happened . Sometimes the difference between words used in British English and American English does matter! Oh and don’t worry, I talk about Australian English as well.
You can also use the video to practise word stress and intonation for longer English words.
