    In addition to spelling, and vocabulary, there are a few differences in grammar between American and British English. For example, in American English, collective nouns are treated as singular (e.g., as a team, and as a game).

    In British English, “in to” is a preposition of time and place. However, in American English, instead of the first one, “on”, the second “in”.
