    I don't have any "fresh" Britishisms. Of course that could change in October when we will be welcoming the British invasion.

    Not necessarily.

    Can also mean dirty, unwashed, etc.

    Re: Learning to speak English with Rich (aka Trickster)

    Ha ha this thread is wicked!

    Hopefully this hasn't been said yet and i've missed it but a phrase used a LOT on a Sunday morning after the night before is
    'I feel rough.' (meaning you feel like ****)
    'My mouth is as dry as Ghandi's flip flop' (not sure if that's just an english thing)
    'alright treacle?' (said by builders usually)

    Can't think of anymore at the mo, but will be sure to post when i hear some typical 'britishisms'

    Re: Learning to speak English with Rich (aka Trickster)

    Can't believe I almost forgot my fave one that i use a lot with my friends

    'Boreoff!!' (said with disdain usually)
    To be used if someone is being a boreoff, if you don't wanna do something that is boreoff, if you see something that is boreoff....
    just for anything that makes you bored really. Example:

    'Coming out tonight?'
    'Nah i'm really hungover still'
    'Boreoff!'

    Re: Learning to speak English with Rich (aka Trickster)

    Only just seen this thread, and it's really put a smile on my face - loving all the Brit terms - didn't realise how many us Brit-folks say without thinking that it might not make any sense to people outside of the UK.

    A couple more for ya'll...
    "you're having a woolly-scarf / giraffe" (having a laugh - a bit of the old Cockney Rhyming Slang for you)
    "whatcha" - informal hello
    "spag-bol" - spaghetti bolognese
    "tasty crumpet" - a compliment aimed at somebody you fancy
