Hi,
I am reading a grammar book. I am not sure if they are used in UK or America.
Here is the example from the book "I like Natasha. I went on holiday with her. Talking of holidays, what are your plans for this year?" Is it correct to say," Talking about holidays...," or "Speaking of holidays..."

Next, I just heard the character said this on TV program, "...the address is in the file." Is it okay to say "the address is on the file"? Is there any difference?

Also today I went to get my eyes checked and sadly I needed to get a new pair, so luckily they have glasses fitting section. Is is the right? Is it also okay to say it" an eye glasses store?" Or, should it be eye glass store?

Last, i read an article online, it said," most automakers prefer to not to have to enter..."

Should we say," prefer not to have to enter?"

Thanks,

In the US, this would be on vacation, so your book uses British English.

thanks CJ,

So, in that case, people from UK have these English usages? They say prefer to not? and Talking of something instead of "Speaking of"

thanks,
