English is the mother tongue of nearly 400 million people globally. Millions more speak it in other capacities, but of those countries that use it as a first language, you’ll find great diversity. Most words generally fall between British or American English, but in addition to those, each English speaking country has its own vernacular that would leave native speakers from other nations confused.

But never fear! Whether you want to become a fair dinkum offsider in the Outback, try a lekker braai, or drink some skookum homo milk with a Mountie, as true as Bob we’ll have you prepped and ready!
