*Notice that in British slang the meaning of “geek” is slightly different in a negative way. In the UK, a “geek” is someone into computers and IT, but also a boring and not fashionable person.

      1. I think it’s a great idea, Reem. English slang is essential in real life.
        I call it “English slang”, but the truth is that there is a difference between American slang, British slang, Australian slang, etc. You should check the dictionary to be sure of the real meaning and use of a slang term/expression. For example, this is a dictionary of British slang: http://www.peevish.co.uk/slang/
        Another useful resource is the Urban Dictionary (http://www.urbandictionary.com/). On this website, people write comments and explain slang expressions with example sentences. Sometimes, they also tell you if that expression is still common or not and where.
