Toward vs Towards- What’s the difference?

Some persons will tell you, don’t use ‘towards’, instead use ‘toward’. What’s the difference? Does it make a difference which word you use?

The difference does not lie in grammar, but in spelling preference since they both mean the same thing: ‘in the direction of’. Therefore, the meaning of the sentence does not change regardless of which word you use.

‘Toward’ is more conmonly associated with American spelling and ‘Towards’ with British spelling. Neither are wrong… just use to suit your preference or style.
