Great and interesting lesson on slang in English.English is still the transformation. This is what we now include the slang will be an integral part of the informal Angielski. Moving on. Huge impact on the transformation of the English language are accretions of language, so called black English and Ebonics.

hey James, when i first saw your video in the begining, i thought you were just like any other english teacher, but it turned out you are not, and totally out of my expectations! i really like your way of teaching, very characteristic,and i bet you have an amazing personality: P anyway, hope you will have more quality videos coming out, and you got my attention :)

Screw off...no one says that anymore. They use F off. and or you just tell someone very rudely " get out of my face ". Also dude and man , there at the beginning. Oh and plz no one say whaaaaasssup. People will think your from the 80/90 when that expression died. Oh and screw u, now only means f you. So becarful, no one thinks about the literal screw anymore. American english slang changes alot.

"screw off" is also a part of "the f word" part. "screw off!!!" means "f*** of!!!" it depends on context and the tone of your voice to tell what you intend

I'm gonna translate: Screwdriver = destornillador. Screw = Tornillo Screw You = Jodete 1.- Mistake = Error 2.- Sex = Sexo 3.- Politter Form Of (F Word) = Forma mas amable de (la palabra con F) 4.- To Leave = Irse = Dejar algun lugar. 5.- To be in trouble = Estar en problemas. 6.- To Cheat = Engañar. 7.- Crazy = Te Falta un tornillo = Estas Loco. 8.- To cause trouble for someone = Causar problemas por alguien mas.

Thanks for the lesson. Could you explain the slang word - tripping as in: "You're tripping." I have some idea, but can't figure out if this is an offensive statement.
