Hi again,

It's hard to tell the difference but the first one you will probably notice is the Canadian "EH?" at the end of the sentence. First I thought it was horrible, until I realize I was saying and even txt my friends with the eh? at the end...lol

The way Canadians say "about" [a-boat] is so ugly. Another one would be "not at all" sounds more British than American. 

At my workplace we have 80% Canadians, 15% Americans and 5% immigrants. I couldn't tell the difference when an American was talking to me or a Canadian. But it all depend where in Canada the person is from and which part of America. I have a good friend from Brooklyn, NY, when she first say "hi" to me I knew that she's from Brooklyn I love that accent...

You're right, for writing is more British like colour, centre, etc....


Sid
