    It’s good to know about insults and childish sayings. They help us to understand a bit more the British culture.

Hi Jade,

The Mortal Kombat sound at the end of the video is really cool! :)
I have one question about the quiz:
What does “pukker” mean?

Friday, August 29th 2014

    ‘Pukker’ is a slang adjective that means great.

    Friday, August 29th 2014

Thanks a lot . It is really too amazing your britanic intonation , I hope from you more .

Friday, August 29th 2014

Thank you Jade!

Hello Jade,

It was amusing lesson !!!. Do you think you could make a lesson with adult insults or it doesn’t have to be insults it could be London slang or something like that. I enjoyed this lesson and I would appreciate if you kept going :) !!! Maybe some football chants if you know any but I don’t assume you do. :-D

Take care.

But, unfortunately, met with Premier tough little but Hacs improvement in tone somewhat violin in Alhlesin mean I’m as far as I understand most of your videos, but what I hear Video extent talking about quickly by a large margin I can not understand it well and sometimes a sense of frustration As for the conversation as possible, but downright speak where mistakes in pronunciation downright also possible to use the rules to be misplaced. Average time possible tell me at least an hour and sometimes more than acceptable not supposed increases and mastering the language needs or what a great time waiting for your advice for the development of skills and thank you to all those involved in the this wonderful site

Hello Jade

Your lessons are the best, really. Amusing, awfully useful, tots fun. Above all the advanced lessons. I’m looking forward to more advanced ones pls.

Also as a suggestion I’m leaving here a vid I’ve just watched which I think can be motivating for you to teach us a bit more about idioms (British ones) and their origins.

Hope you’ll enjoy it too
