    Plenty of differences! Just like the differences of vocabulary between Tokyo, Kansai, Okinawa, etc., there are surely even more differences across the world of English… but not different enough that we can’t quickly understand one another.

    The focus of most learners is on improving their capabilities with the usage of American English. There are many subtle differences between the two in written and spoken form.

    アメリカ人ですけど、オーストラリア人などの英語は分かりにくいです。日本語を分かっても、沖縄に行くと、何を言っているかを全く分からへん。

    アメリカの以外ならよく聞こえる英語はアメリカかイギリス英語なので、アメリカ英語を勉強すればいいだと思いますが、時々別の英語も聞こえますので。

    I enjoy Okinawa and look forward to communicating with you in this forum.
