How many types of English are there?

It’s a common misconception that English is just one language – actually, English has many different varieties and variants. These include American English, British English, Indian English, Singaporean English, Nigerian English, and more. All varieties have their own special variations in grammar, lexis, pronunciation, and idioms. It’s a great idea when teaching English as a foreign language to educate your students about global English varieties, and give them an introduction to variants that they might find in different types of English. English is a global language after all, and needs to be taught like one!
