And now for an english lesson..

MING, SKANKY or MANKY
These are all words used by English people to describe when something is dirty or yuck.
eg. Not having a shower for 3 days is skanky.
A gross dinner could be 'manky'

LUSH or ACE
These are words to be used instead of cool
eg. You're ace

FIT
Can be used in more ways than one so can get confusing.
1. To describe a goodlooking boy/girl
eg. That guy is so fit
2. To describe someone personal health
eg. You are so fit.
3. To describe the general coolness of something
eg. That was so fit!

LADS
Another word for boys but its used heaps over here!

A BREW
a cup of tea

'ELLO LOVE, YOU 'RITE?'
this is a general greeting of hello

and they say that we talk the same language as the english..dont believe it for a second..

And my postal address for those of you who want it is
42 York Street
Gillingham
Kent
ME7 5JG
England

Ps:
Also, T'ere is no such letter as H!
Eg: 'here is no one called
Harry here, only 'arry...
W'at 'appened to all t'eir
H's? Wonder w'ere 't'ey're
'iding?
'ope you understand, as you
can see, t'ings are quite difficult
to understand without our friend
t'e letter H!
