We still spell the same as you

Americans confuse me for English all the time

We just have our own regional slang

I read this quote a while back, its actually true, including the last line.

If you ever go to the UK you will notice that the majority of people do not speak the Queen's English. Only posh, wealthy people speak that way, and even they use a lot of weird linguistic short cuts that Americans would not use. For example rather than saying "When I was in the hospital" they would say "When I was at hospital", which sounds very odd and incorrect to American ears. The lower classes take it to a whole other level, and the way they speak would hardly be recognized as English to the average American. I'm not saying that Americans have fabulous linguistic skills (we don't) but no one bastardizes the English language quite like the British.

So the UK is like the Mexico of English speaking countries.

As far as I'm aware they use standard English spellings, the same way we do in England
