English slang

Hey guys! What's up? I would like to know some English slang. Could you please share it?

 

Thank you very much and have a nice day!

 Ps: I'm sorry if I made some mistakes, I'm learning still. So, feel free to correct my mistakes.

Your English was fine. Only suggestion I would make is that instead of asking to share "it", in this context, I would have said share some. Or, even, "share some examples". "It" usually is singular, whereas some implies you are looking for multiple examples. It depends on what part of the world you live in when it comes to English slang. In my home state of California, in the States, the words sick, sweet, and tight mean the same thing. Essentially, if one of those words are used to describe something it means it was really exciting, enjoyable, fun, or just "cool". Hey dude that was sick! That concert was hella (very) tight! That's a sweet ride(vehicle), man! I'm new to this website so hopefully this was constructive!

Hi,

If you don't mind, I'll post some that I know, and the aproximated meaning in portuguese, ok ?

Break a leg = Boa sorte, sucesso !

Couch potato = pessoa preguiçosa, que não faz exercício.

Douchebag or Douche = babaca, otário, etc

Piece of cake = muito fácil, muito simples

It's a breeze ! = mais ou menos a mesma coisa que "piece of cake"

That's not my cup of tea = não é algo que eu goste muito, não faz meu tipo, não é pra mim

Well, that's it.

Hope you like it :)

Warning! A lot of the terms on this site are offensive but you can find a lot of slang here. Most of these expressions would be used only among your close friends.
