What are some differences in English phrases and usage in various English speaking countries?
When I visited Ireland, I went to see a film that had just started. The man at the museum where the film was said to me “It’s just after starting.” In the US, we would say “it just started.”
Yesterday I was watching Undercover Boss and the episode was on the head of a hotel chain in Australia. I noticed that when the workers greeted the guests, they would say “How are you going?” Here in the US, we would say “How are you doing?”
What are some other differences you are aware of between English phrases and usage in various English speaking countries?
