English explanation

Please correct the English in these (and other) exercises. Native speakers of English would not say something is "different to". We say, it is "different from". 

E.g., English is different from Spanish in that we use the apostrophe to show the possessive

Hola Pati

"Different to/different from/different than" is one of the many much-discussed grammar "old chestnuts".

It's probable that you only use one of the above. However, all of them are grammatically correct! I invite you to take a look at this link from the Cambridge Dictionary:

Different from, different to or different than?

In addition, you might be interested in reading our article on what type of English we use on our website: Is this English correct?

Thank you for taking the time to contact us!

Saludos
