American slang. Have you noticed after speaking to some native

English speakers that we tend to use words that mean something else? Then you stop them and ask them to clarify what they mean?

For me, my language changes depends on who I speak with. In a professional setting I turn on my academic language. If I’m taking to close friends I tend to use more slang and common phrases often used in California. Every country has their own unique slang.

What’s a slang in your country you use quite often?

Since I’m from Northern California, we use the word Hella a lot. Hella just means very.

For example, “that guy looks hella fine”
Translation: that guy looks very good 😌

    @Sophy I think you can name a boy anything you want. But I have never heard Blat used as a boys name. And blat sounds like splat 😂😂 it sounds like it’s a mess or stain that happen on the wall lol

    @Lucky 王乐乐 @Lucky no worries, you already helped me a lot. My son likes this one, I think as long as no horrible meaning refers to it, It would be a very simple (easy to write ) but interesting name.

    I’m not sure on fleek would translate as « attractive ». Usually we use it to talk about eyebrows (ever since the viral video) so it would translate more as « on point » or « perfect »

    Yeah, it’s sometimes difficult with slang word or phrases. I was often confused when someone said that he went bananas. I then asked myself what bananas have to do with it. Same with nuts. 😃
