I wrote 'We have been waiting in the queue for two hours' . This is not accepted.

Did you try, "We have been queuing for two hours,"?

Americans wait in a line. Americans don't use queue (it's a French word.)

You don't use café, bouquet of flowers, avant-garde, carte-blanche, cliché, déjà vu, faux pas, just to name a few?
