  • hi everyone welcome back to english with

  • Lucy I've got a short little video for

  • you today it's been highly requested

  • it's all about british slang

  • so today I'm going to talk to you about

  • five slang words and phrases that we use

  • here in England the first slang word is

  • the tube and any of you that have

  • visited London will know this quite well

  • the tube for us is the underground but

  • we would never call it a metro or the

  • underground we normally call it the tune

  • and that's because it's in the shape of

  • a tube so if you visit London make sure

  • you ask for the nearest tube station now

  • people will understand you if you say

  • metro station or underground station but

  • if you want to sound like a native the

  • tube

  • ok the next word is local so if I say

  • I'm just popping down to my local what

  • would I be saying what do I mean well I

  • mean I'm popping down just quickly

  • visiting my local pub now a big part of

  • British culture is going to the pub so

  • it's very fitting that we have a slang

  • word for it

  • the local and this is s slang word that I use

  • quite a lot I'd say oh yes we just met

  • in my local and everyone knows i'm

  • referring to my local pub the next word

  • is thrash and this is a verb to thrash

  • now what would I be saying if I said I

  • absolutely thrashed him

  • well we would be saying I beat him not

  • in a physical sense it means in a game

  • it means I won over someone so say I was

  • playing cards with my dad and i won by a

  • long way i would say yeah I absolutely

  • thrashed him the next british slang word

  • is iffy

  • so if i say ooh no that sounds a bit

  • iffy

  • what would I be saying iffy refers to

  • something incorrect or not quite right

  • so if my mom says to me Lucy I've just

  • received an email and a really rich

  • Prince wants to give me 200 million

  • pounds i would say ooh mum that sounds

  • iffy

  • I don't think that's quite right and

  • the final word skint skint so if i said i

  • bought all this new camera equipment and now

  • i'm totally skint

  • what would I be saying it means i have

  • no money or i think americans would say

  • broke in this case but for us we would say

  • skint if someone invites me out but I

  • can't go because I've not enough money i

  • just say nah I'm skint

  • ok those were my five british slang

  • words and phrases i hope you enjoyed
