Americans are the outlier on how we use "biscuit"
They are close to what the British would call scones. But American scones are different, because nothing about this is uncomplicated. To most of the rest of the English-speaking world, a biscuit is what Americans would refer to as either a cookie or a cracker.
In the U.K., a cookie specifically refers to a chocolate chip cookie. Anything else would be called a “biscuit.” Biscuits aren't the chewy cookies you'd find in American bakeries, but have a crisper texture, like shortbread, or a snap. It's a fact that British bacon tastes better—and here's why.

Umbrellas have plenty of nicknames. In Britain, brolly is a popular alternative to the more staid umbrella. Sarah Gamp, a fictional nurse who toted a particularly large umbrella in Charles Dickens's novel Martin Chuzzlewit, has inspired some English speakers to dub oversize versions gamps.
Sneakers have so many different names. For example, in the United Kingdom, sneakers are known as trainers. But, it doesn't stop there… High-tops: Shoes that rise above the ankle.
A Biscuit (U.S.) Is a Scone (U.K.)
A British biscuit is not remotely similar to the fluffy and filling American biscuits made famous in Southern American cuisine. The closest British equivalent to those buttery miracles is a scone, which ain't too bad either.
“Buzzin'” can mean to be tipsy or slightly drunk, "I'm buzzin' after that pint." It's also British slang for being excited or very happy, “I just booked my holiday to Spain, I'm absolutely buzzin'.”
Now-a-days, however, a typical English breakfast is more likely to be a bowl of cereals, a slice of toast, orange juice and a cup of coffee. Many people, especially children, in England will eat a bowl of cereal. They are made with different grains such as corn, wheat, oats etc.
