  1. I would like to know whether the language is AmE or BrE – could you add that ? I know sometimes it’s obvious but.. I’m a teacher and have forwarded several films to a few Adult students who would love to learn this way.
    Great idea 🙂

    1. Hi Avril,
      Thanks very much for commenting. It’s a very good question. Most of the viewing guides are of American films so there are a lot of American expressions and idioms in the glossary, but the spelling and phonemic spelling are in British English. I hope this helps. I hope your students use the guides and learn a lot fo English from them.
      All the best,
      Kieran
