NA1 English accent vs American accent


Watch this extract from Ellen DeGeneres's show in which she plays a game with Hugh Laurie (House). They have to guess the meanings of some British & American slang 
(words or expressions  that are very informal.Some slang is used only by a particular group of people)
Do you understand what these words mean?
  • Flossing
  • Chin wag
  • Ba-donka-donk
  • Chuffed to bits
  • Shawty 
If you fancy watching the whole inteview, click here . I wasn't able to find it without subtitles. So click on play and minimise the screen, just listen. Then watch it and check what you understood and and if you got the right answers for the slang exercise.
