    It is the easiest to understand and most people speak that way around the world. European and Australia english is very hard to understand.

    It's less confusing and perhaps easier and maybe less pretentious.

    Before asking 'Why?' please first show us that what you're asking about is actually true.

    I don't know of any studies showing that 'most young Europeans today prefer American English'.

    I would also like to know what you mean by 'prefer'. In what contexts? Reading, speaking, formal, casual? Many people use different kinds of English in different contexts.

    They don't know what they are talking about and they know too little about English.

    The accent is less of an accent.

    They don't

    but in many cases, the majority of the English they are exposed to is American TV-series, movies, songs...

    Who told you that? Does it sound like Greta Thunberg uses American English?
