Common Used UK Slang

What is Slang?



"A type of language consisting of words and phrases that are regarded as very informal, are more common in speech than writing, and are typically restricted to a particular context or group of people."

Do you have a hard time understanding UK Enlish slang? well, you are not alone there are slang words that I have not heard since I was a teenager which many people still use today not just young people.

I constantly hear new slang words and I have no clue what they mean haha. Not all English langauge slang is the same, for instance alot of American Slang is different from UK slang.
