  2. But these don't seem like slangs, I think some phrases like "Screw You!", "F Off" and "GTFO" would be more appropriate to be called "Slangs"
    Anyways babe, you look like a million dollars, just by the skin of your teeth!

  3. Knew em all but appreciate your hardwork.Can you make a short video explaining a regimen one can follow to increase his/her vocab, I'll totally love that.Anyways I subscribed.

  4. Thank you for these idioms. They are very commonly used in the US, especially on the West Coast. California has its own set of idioms and dialects. So funny, especially Southern Cali. I also wish to compliment you on the interesting editing you are doing lately on your videos. They are very powerful and professional appearing. Also, thank you for the tip on Duolingo app. I am learning Spanish and I love this app. It sends me emails every morning and I do 5 minutes of vocabulary or sentence structure and it is so easy and fun! Such a cool app! Thanks and keep up the great and inspiring work and for breaking your "likes" goal!

  5. as an american i think people should know that slang is very regional. i’m from the pacific northwest but have friends in california or friends on the west cost that use very different slang words. also i think it’s important to know that some of the words in this video, such as couch potato, are more commonly used by middle aged people or older. the slang used by high school and college students may be much harder to follow for someone that doesn’t speak english as their native language! i know i personally have the tendency to shorten words to single letters like saying b instead of babe or boy, some people have the tendency to end up talking the way they text. also a note on sweet, just for the sake of not using it with the right inflection i would only use it in regards to a person or something a person did, more like a term of endearment, if you get in the habit of saying “oh sweet!” instead of “oh cool” or “nice!” you might sound over enthusiastic which sounds like a weird thing, but i know a lot of people who are put off by too much excitement or enthusiasm. idk if this will help anyone, but good luck with american slang, it’s a mess!
