This blog post is 13 years old! Most likely, its content is outdated. Especially if it's technical.

If you're American and plan to move to England, you do right in have a read through of this list. It's a ridiculously long list of cockney slang words but rather straight foward English common words.

I've heard most of them but some I don't dare to use because as a foreigner they'd just sound silly. Now I've learnt what Spend a penny and Porridge means at least.

I need to take an online course in teaching English as a second language. What advice do you have for taking the British online course? Or should I stick with the American one?
