One of my favorite parts about traveling is observing how people are similar in many ways but also unique. The British have many words and phrases that are new to me and absolutely delightful.
Choosing only a few to share with you was difficult. There are so many! If you have any words from your own language that you want to share, please do so in a comment. I love learning new things.
599. Pigeon Holes – These are mail boxes. I have not gotten anything in mine yet.
600. Pudding – Any type of dessert can be labeled as a pudding.
601. Que – A fancy word for line, people stand in these quite often.
602. Good Morning – We were told as a class several times that this meant “Be quiet and listen up!”
603. Coach – How much more elegant than a bus!
604. All right? – This pretty much means, “Okay” or, “If you are all ready.”
