|Is it OK to speak American English in Britain?

It is very common for a Chinese person to learn American English – but is this a problem if you come to Britain? Does it really make a difference if you speak American English in Britain or when you talk to a British person in English?
Lily asks us this question in this week's Ask About Britain and Jo and Oliver investigate. Our very own BBC Learning English language expert gives us her advice and some British people tell us what they think.
Listen to Jo's report to find out if it really does make a difference what kind of English you speak with a British person.
