You Are Who?

One of my adult students is going to Britain in a few weeks to teach PE. Since starting, he's constantly asked how things are said in British English. It was strange, then, that he acted so surprised when tonight I said, "They don't talk like I do."

I haven't had a Korean lesson in a long time. I want to learn South Korean Korean, and J., who I've begun calling Snow, speaks a different variant.

Hillary grew up speaking her hometown dialect. She had to learn the Beijing version of Mandarin when she got to college. Now she teaches me.
