In countries like the United Kingdom, the USA, and Australia people speak English as a first language. But they don't speak exactly the same English. English sounds different in these countries because people use different pronunciation and there are different word for some things. Americans don’t say “football”, they say “soccer”, and they say “movie”, not “film”. Some Australians say “G’day”, not “Hi”, and they don’t say “this afternoon”, they say “this arvo”. In some countries, for example India and some African countries there are a lot of different languages, so people use English as the official language.
	In countries where English isn’t a first language, people speak it as a foreign language. People want to study English because it’s an international language; it’s in films, magazines and pop songs. A lot of people, especially scientists and business people, use English when they work, travel or use a computer.

Some people write a different type of English when they communicate in chat rooms or by instant messages like MSN. They use words like “uok”, “thnx” and “cul8r”.
