Corrections: analyse, biscuit If it helps you to remember, "biscuit" comes from French: bis (twice/again) + cuit (cooked, from the verb "cuire"). You can call the mobile phone simply "mobile"... or even "wobbly" if you want to have fun with rhyming slang (do you get the connection?). :)

Biscuit and Jumper are also American words but they don't mean the same thing. British biscuits are American cookies. A British jumper is an American sweater. A jumper is also someone who jumps (probably in both places)

Further to the above answer, the following are not exclusively British: At the weekend In the street Film Mobile phone (cell phone is more common in the US, but they still use mobile)
