Questions about IELTSWhich is correct: “__ is different from __” or “__ is different than __”?

The quick answer is that “different from” is always correct and acceptable everywhere, but “different than” is common in US usage (as odd as it may seem for two things to be both different than the other), and “different to” is common in UK usage (as odd as it may seem to have both “different from” and “different to” mean the same thing).
