    I love this infographics! Really do 🙂 I knew about the tea, that it was introduced by a Portuguese queen – fancy that??? 😀 And I’m learning some slang as well, only 4 years later. The one of things you’ll do once you move to London, so true. I still laugh in the picadilly line and I use this line frequently.

    I love this! It’s really fascinating!!! BUT…
    THE LANGUAGE SECTION IS DEFINATELY WRONG SO I AM TAKING THE LIBERTY TO CORRECT YOU : D
    I HAVE LIVED IN VARIOUS PLACES IN ENGLAND MY WHOLE LIFE SO I KNOW WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT!!! : )
    HERE IS A LIST OF WHAT YOU GOT WRONG!
    British – American
    Sandwich – Sandwich
    Fairy cake and cupcake – cupcake
    We never say peckish!!! It’s either hungry or starving or I want food! – Hungry
    Cozy but waaaaayy more often swimming costume – swimsuit
    Pants (we NEVER call them knickers – Panties
    Scarf (I have NEVER heard anybody saying muffler? Lol) – Scarf
    We tend to use stupid – Stupid
    Idiot/moron (nobody really uses plonker anymore) – Idiot
    Insane/mental (I have never even heard of the word range!) – Insane
    We use piss off more frequently than – sod of
    We use the word tramp as well as slag which is mostly referring to girls (and not so much slapper)
    People don’t tend to say Ace anymore we use awesome a lot though – awesome
    Bye/Goodbye/See ya (later) NOT CHEERIO NEVER EVER CHEERIO – goodbye
    So gutted is used when you are super sad but normally you just say I am sad or upset – upset
    Nap or rest but not kip – nap
    Again; only use knackered if you are really tired normally we just say tired – Tired!
    Shit more commonly – Shit
    NOBODY SAYS ZONKED!!! We just say we are tired like you do! (by the looks of it).
    NOBODY SAYS BEEB EITHER!!! We just say BBC like you!
    NOBODY SAYS DOSH!!! WOW!!! We say money like you do!
    We always say either toilet or bathroom although there are a few that say Loo – restroom

    I hope you learned because that took me ages! Off for a cheeky Nando’s now!!! ; D
