American English color, British English colour, AE flavor BE flavour. Think the difference is the spelling of certain words. Not really sure but please share with us your response to your employer sounds interesting. Ellie :D

So it's more of a 'feeling' you get when hearing it?

that was a funny answer that you gave. grins. i think it's the spelling in their words. for example, colour and color. both are spelt differently. one's american and one's british. another example is organize and organise. besides spelling, their pronunciation is different of course. i think this is about all i know. it's really late right now so i don't really remember.
