Why might you want to know both the English vs European knitting methods.  First, importantly, changing up your knitting style can relieve your wrists, Have you spent hours knitting only to have pain in your hands and wrists?  Switching up your style halfway thru that long knitting season can ease that pain. English style, sometimes referred to as throwing, requires a different hand-wrist action than Continental, the style that only picks at the yarn.   Switch your style; see if you notice the difference.
