There are many culture differences between United States of America and United Kingdom. Us and Uk people both have their own way of talking, making friends and interacting with people, even the social structure is also different.

Here we will discuss about some aspects of British and American Culture. Hope it will help you to understand the differences between American culture and British culture :

1. British people are more civil. Americans are very open and friendly. Chat with an American is quite easy even they are quick to share literally private details about their private lives but British are more reserved about personal lives.

2. The 24 hour clock is measured as usual in British but it is basically unused in the USA.

3. When writing out numbers, the British include "and" previous to the tens and units, for example : two thousand and three. In America it is considered proper to drop the "and".
