• British Slang

    Converting Everyday English to Something
    Much More Fun & Useful... At Least When You Go To England.

    Next time you cross the pond to visit jolly old England make sure you have your slang down!

    (by the way, have you checked out ZZZippy’s British Invasion story?

    Without trying to be downright gobby, a lot of tossers will drop a clanger simply because they won’t take a quick peek at our little tutoring below.

    Later those same daft cows simply can’t chin wag with the Brits for a bit; instead they sit there with a crusty dragon, totally gormless.

    So don’t you be cheeky now; take a gander at what we’ve offered you- otherwise you might be snookered yourself… and Bob’s your uncle.
