I'm a former crocheter, but I prefer to knit English style with my working yarn in my right hand. I can knit continental as well and use both styles for fair isle.

German = Continental. I read it was known as German knitting but fell out of favor around the time of WWII and was resurrected with a new name. Something like that. A rose by any other name ... I believe American = English, go figger. It's called that in at least some of knit freedom's videos, I've come across it other places too.
