American English may seem more popular as it is used a lot in

the Media and TV Shows but generally around the world, more

countries do actually speak a variation of British English. This is

because America has never had its own colonies in which it could

spread American English which is different to the British who

introduced British English to all of their colonies around the

world during the British Empire.
