10 very British expressions 🇬🇧
. 
Cheeky
. 
Cheeky is used to describe somebody who says something insolent or irrelevant in an amusing way. You might say “Don’t be so cheeky!”
. 
Fancy
.
If a friend invites you for a drink, there isn’t a big chance you’ll hear the question: “Would you like to go out for a drink?”, instead, they are much more likely to say: “Fancy a drink?”
. 
Knackered
. 
Do you feel extremely tired or exhausted? Then you might say: “‘I am absolutely knackered!”
. 
Being funny
.
“Being funny” can mean something is comical, but a smell can also be funny: “it smells funny in here”. This means it doesn’t smell very nice, or there is a weird smell. Also the British expression: “ I am not being funny but…” is used to soften a complaint which follows the phrase.
. 
Smash it!
. 
This expression can mean “Go for it!” or “to achieve/win something”. For example, if you have an exam and you feel pretty nervous, your friend might tell you: “Good luck! Smash it!”
. 
Nice one!
. 
Both sarcastically and sincerely. When being used sincerely, it can be used to express feelings of gratitude. But sarcasm? Imagine your friend spills a drink. You might say “Oh nice one!” – in this context, it loosely means “That was silly”
. 
Dodgy
. 
It means that something doesn’t look very honest, legal or simply “not right”.
. 
Loo
. 
You will be surprised how many words you will find for bathroom and loo is one of them! Loo, toilet, washroom, bathroom, ladies’, men’s… the list goes on.
. 
Bloody
. 
It is a common word to give more emphasis to the sentence, mostly used as an exclamation of surprise. Something may be “bloody marvellous” or “bloody awful“.
.
Boss
. 
You can say that something is “boss” to say something is extremely cool: “Dude, that’s so boss”. Also, if someone achieves something with a high level of success, you can say that they did it “Like a boss”.
