English to “English” Lessons

England and America both speak English; however, in England some words have quite different meanings. This video I found on Youtube might be of some use for those of you who read the blog in America.

  6. Hahaha!

    hmmmm…here is some humor using the english dictionry.

    And nicked the nickers off someone’s bird while having a fag! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    I am so bad!

  7. opps …I can’t even spell my own name!

    Andy nicked the nickers off someone’s bird while having a fag!

    Hint: I am still smoking! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    I am my own worse enemy, I know. I am doomed.

  8. ok…here is a better one:

    While yearning to have a fag, Andy nicked the nickers off of some bloke’s bird, snogging the bloke’s bird long enough to take the piss out of the bloke. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    Now that is funny, and true!

    Oh great…Now I have to decide if I want to quit smoking or not.

    Just when I thought I had decided to quit too. Damn! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    I am so screwed…I wish!

  9. Good thing it works both ways for me! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    I am definitely doomed.

  10. Well, I guess that about proves that I am bi-sexual. Yes?

  11. Guess I’ll have to keep smoking until I make up my mind.

  12. Hey, I know….I will wait until next year to quit smoking and deal with it then. There. Problem solved.

    I am too stressed right now to quit, and yet I would be less stressed if I did.

    I am doomed.

  13. At least I can still have my dreams.

  14. I think that is the hard part for me, is letting go of my dreams of a truly fantastic life.

  15. I can still have a loving life with a lover who is loving, but no where near as incredible as a life with you.

  16. Ah well. Sa la ve

  17. However you choose to do it, keep in touch!

    For just as a rare jewel, like the pearl,

    is most precious to the owner who understands it’s value,

    so is a treasured friend.

    Don’t let the distance between you be anything other than miles!

    For the precious pearl is your own loving hearts!

    So take care of it and each others.

    Melody Carison

  18. All the answers you look for are in your own loving hearts, when ever you take time to reflect and dwell in your loving heart.

  19. As I told you I’m from Mexico, and in my English courses we have studied the differences of the meaning of the words between both countries, and I learn more of those differences with the video.
    Thanks Louise!
