Great progress on language acclimation

I am so pleased to report that I stopped an Englishman dead in his tracks when I used the phrase “bugger off” correctly in a sentence AND without missing a beat… he stopped the conversation cold to congratulate me.

Using English words instead of American ones is good, but getting the slang right and in context is priceless!
