Tincture

Xander's jaw dropped as Andrew gesticulated out the window, letting forth a stream of invective that would make a sailor blush. "What the hell was that?"

"The royal salute. I hate it when people don't use their indicators and white van man is the worst."

It took a moment for Xander to parse Andrew's answer. There was way too much that he'd lost in translation. "Are you sure you're still speaking English?"

Andrew overtook an elderly Volvo before glancing at Xander. "How long have you lived here without picking up local colour?"

"I guess I'm a California boy at heart."

I was wondering about that as I wrote it, the plural just sounded wrong. Thanks for confirming it.

That he is. I can't see him swimming happily in a pool of local idioms any time soon.

Two peoples, separated by a common language.

While Andrew wouldn't have a problem with that, I think Xander may argue that they're speaking a common language.

Well, Andrew's a typical American. That is, clueless.
