Oi! You reckon you're ready for this here quiz about British slang? Then come on in, it's going to be knees up for ya!

When you take a trip to the UK or in countries that are UK territories, you will be acquainted with the immediate changes in the English language over there, especially if you're more familiar with the American brand of English. Here's a handy travel tip: It's always a good idea to be prepared and brush up on how they speak English, before even landing.

For those who grew up Americanized, the stretch doesn't seem to be that far off. The main difference lies in how some common words are spelled. We say color, they say colour. We say organize, they say organise. Get the drift? 

But of course, more than the difference in spelling is the huge difference in the informal language that they use. Take for example some common slang interjections that sound like fun. Blimey, is that correct! Yes, if you paid attention to the Harry Potter film series, the Hogwarts boys say "Blimey!" a lot, especially Ron. Or how about "Rubbish!" That's a favorite term that the rebellious blokes like to use. We'll let you guess what that one means inside the quiz proper.

So, are you ready to ace this one? Have a gander. Cheers!
