In England they don't speak English, they only speak English in America? WTF?? Your either confused or well....
Umm...as a reminder, the majority of people living in "America" speak Spanish. That's the official language of 20 of the 35 countries that make this continent (and a lot of people living in countries where it is not official, like, say the US or Canada, speak it too! The horror!). The US is a country in the continent of America. Thus, you would be more correct to joke that in the US people speak "USian", not "American", since "American", given the numbers and percentage of speakers that make up this continent, actually probably more accurately reflects "Spanish".
Anyway, I think you may be a bit more confused about geography than I am.
I am also a fluent (native) Spanish and English speaker equally, and I can therefore easily joke that the Spanish from Spain, is "not real Spanish", just like one might joke, in the UK, that the English spoken in the US is not real "English". It's a joke. Get over it. And it is also true that no one outside of Spain understands the Spanish when they speak (Spanish or otherwise). Heck, sometimes they don't even understand each other!
Travel more, kiddo. It might help your geography, and maybe even give you a sense of humor. :)
