感到有些退流行,還有與英語失去連繫了嗎?有人說你的英語"太正式"或"太過時"了嗎?在每個語言裡,新字彙不斷地發明,舊有的字彙總是賦加新的意思,為了能讓你的語言流利,你必須持續學習"俚語"。這裡有一些重要的字彙及片語是你必須要知道。


一般最常說的俚語單字「cool」,這個字表示讚美某物。如果你看了一部好電影,你可以告訴你的朋友電影很「cool」或是如果你想要讚美一位朋友,你可以這樣稱呼她是一位「cool person」。然而,如果某人問道:「How are you?」你的回答:「I'm cool」並不只意思「I'm good」而已。這個意思是說你感到滿足、平靜或者是放鬆。當你想到這個字就想到在炎熱的一天接觸冰淇淋的愉快極好的感覺。


「Chill」可以被視為cool這個字的同義字,但是你也可以把它視為是動詞「Chilling」我們大聲發這個音時,「g」通常不發音,所以聽起來像「chillin」。這個字的意思是花了時間並沒做任何事情但是仍玩得很開心,說法「I spent Friday night chilling with my friends.」意思與「cool」這個字非常相似,意味著感覺滿足及放鬆。

經常使用到的英文俚語「feel me」或「feel you」,意思是指有很深的了解程度。熱情地告訴某人你對於某事的感受,你可以這樣問:「Do you feel me?」它的意思「Do you understand what Im telling you?」涉及個人問題。你可以禮貌的回答:「Yeah, I feel you.」

如果你的一位朋友來找你並且告訴你剛剛他們發生了不好的事,你可以賦予同情的這樣說:「That's messed up.」這個片語的意思是一個或一連串不公平或不正義的事發生。深表同情後,你可以這樣問你的朋友:「How are you holding up?」這個意思是你想要知道他們現在怎麼處理這「messed up」的情況。

最後,當你要對你的朋友或熟人說你好和再見時,有幾種不同的表示方法。例如:西班牙文表示說法 「Hola」你好及「Adios」再見。在美國經常使用的說法 「Yo」非正式向人打招呼及「What's up?」你好嗎?。當要說再見時,你可以這樣表示「 I'll catch you later」來說明你將會很快的再見到他。





Feeling a little old and out of touch with the English language? Do people call your English oo formal?or oo dated? In every language, new words are constantly being invented and old words are always taking on new meanings and to be fluent in a language you have to learn to keep up with the lang.? Here are a few important words and phrases to know.


One of the most commonly used slang words is ool,?which is a word that means something is good. If you see a good movie, you can tell your friends it was ool?or if you want to compliment a friend, you can call her a ool person.? However, if someone asks ow are you??and you say  cool?this doesn just mean  good.? It means that you are feeling content, calm, or relaxed. When you think of this word, think of the pleasantly cool feeling of touching ice on a hot day.


hill?can be used as a synonym for cool, but you can also use this as a verb: hilling.? We spoken aloud, the ?is often dropped, so it sounds like hillin.? This word means to spend time doing nothing in particular yet still having fun, as in  spent Friday night chilling with my friends.? Much like ool,?the word connotes feelings of contentment and relaxation.

One common English slang phrase is eel me?or eel you,?which means to understand on a deep level. After having told a person about something that you feeling passionately about, you can ask o you feel me?? It like asking, o you understand what I telling you??only the meaning is more personal. The polite response is eah, I feel you.?/p>

If a friend of yours comes up to you and tells you something bad that just happened to them, you can sympathize with them by saying, hat messed up.? This phrase means that a situation or set of circumstances seems unfair or unjust. Then, after sympathizing with your friend, you can ask, ow are you holding up??which means that you want to know how theye coping with this essed up?situation.

Finally, when youe saying hello and goodbye friends or acquaintances, there are a few different ways things you can do. For instance, Spanish words ?ola?for hello and dios?for goodbye ?are popular in the US. You can also say o?when greeting a person informally, and then ask hat up??to ask how they are doing. And when saying goodbye, you can say l catch you later?to mean that youl see them some time soon.
