Point out that the English Language has many dialects and that one of the most widely spoken is US English.
Ask the class for examples of where they are likely to hear or see the US dialect. Television, film and music are good suggestions.

Raise the point that the Harry Potter books sold in the UK and US contain some language differences too.
