Hi all!

I always heard that the spanish expression "hablar con" would be "talk to" in english, but not long ago I saw a "talk with Jesus" in a text.

What's the difference between "talk to" and "talk with"?

    Hi,

    American English, I believe, uses more often "talk with", whereas British English uses "talk to". They're the same and both are correct.

    Hi,

    I don't think it's really a difference between A.E. and B.E. here. You can talk to or talk with someone and it's basically the same. However, when "talk" is a noun, it's normal to use "with", hence the "talk with Jesus".
