Learn real English with me. Today I am talking about the most common British slang words. This will help you to understand more and to sound like a native speaker.
This is the list of the words that I mention in this lesson:
Mate – it’s used when you are talking to a close friend, and is often easily substituted for the American buddy, dude or pal.
Bugger All – this is a British slang term. It means nothing at all.
Cheers – it’s usually used when toasting a drink with some friends, but in British slang, it also means thanks or thank you.
Ace – a British slang term that means something that is brilliant or excellent.
Bollocks – this word has a multitude of uses but it’s generally used as a curse word used to indicate dismay or disbelief.
Rubbish – is used to mean both general waste and trash, and to also express disbelief in something to the point of ridicule.
Wanker – this is an insult. You can express frustration or even anger. The equivalent in American English would be the word jerk.
Brilliant –It’s a very common word in British English. It’s used when something is exciting or wonderful.
