    unless yer talkin' to yer boss, teacher, or the king himself! you don't need to be formal all the time, 'cause then, you'll sound both dull AND old.
    so my idea for me project is to show ya some British slang (since i have been learning some)
    we don't wanna sound all dull and old, eh?


    you might have noticed some unfamiliar words up there haven't you?
    don't'll learn everything now!
    notice the underlined words. starting with:

    • yer---> you can either use it for 1) you're. 2) your. both is correct.
    • talkin'---> this isn't only british, but it's a common way of making it shorter (replacing the "g" with a coma " ' " )
    • me---> this is VERY british, it's mostly used in Manchester
      also used in Ireland and other places, it's another way of saying "my"
    • ya---> means "you" it's also very common
    • wanna---> means "want to" another shortcut.
    • eh---> this one is used at the end of a question to ask if
      you agree (instead of saying "dont you" in: "you like this cake, don't
      you?" we say "you like this cake, eh?" for example.)


    "yesterday i called me mate and told her 'bout all the good shows i watched on me telly, she told me "BBC is a fun channel, innit?", i said "no mate yer taste is rubbish!" then i told her to keep her gob shut.."


    this is an example of someone talking about the conversation the person had with a friend, or in another word:

    • mate---> another word used to describe a friend
    • me---> "my" as explained.
    • 'bout---> a shorter "about"
    • telly---> a common word which means Television or TV.
    • innit---> which means "isn't it", often used at the end of a
      question, for example: "the weather is bad, innit?". (can't be used as
      "isn't she" or "isn't he).
    • yer---> here it's used as "your".
    • rubbish---> which usually means "trash", it is used when describing a very bad thing.
    • gob---> another word for "Mouth"


    SO! here you go, you are all British now!
    just make sure you're using it right or else you'll sound like an idiot.


    when saying "goodbye", or "thank you"
