Walk wearily is not "airstep"? :(

It would be worth noting in the instructions that you use british spellings.

I agree that you should note that you use British spellings. It's not just for Americans- many other nationalities learn American English.

Not really fair when what you call "British" English is the spelling used in all other English speaking countries except the USA. (I'm referring to the S not Z spelling).

Most of Europe will also learn English spellings, so you just sound very ignorant. The (Brit) should be removed as Patronise is not a British word!
