Claire and I were in a charity shop by the office, buying suits for the next Formal Friday, and overheard the assistants giving the new Japanese assistant lessons in London slang. Here are a few terms, for those who aren't sufficiently 'street' to know them already:
'peng' = good/hot
'butters' = bad/ugly (As in "dem beats is butters man")
'nang' = good
'sick' = also good
'sket' = a slut, a sexually promiscuous girl
Also enjoyed their exchange with their six-year old sister:
- 6yo: "Why can't I say 'sket'?"
- Sister: "Um... because it's offensive"

Nice set of tips on how to speak this particular dialect of Persian - although the techniques could presumably apply to any language.
If anyone is interested, there is a language show on at Olympia in London today, tomorrow and Sunday, called the "language show" (logically enough).
It's free if you register in advance, else I think you can pay on the door on the day. I'm going to go and check it out.
Every member of School of Everything can add notes, links, videos, images, documents and other things to the site that help people learn or teach a particular subject. If you're learning, you can use it to keep track of your progress in your subjects and all the things that help you learn like useful websites or how-to videos.
If you're teaching, you can share useful resources and advice that you think will help people learn you subjects. You can tag each resource post with one or more subjects, and your posts will appear to other people looking for those subjects.
School of Everything is all about meeting up in the real world.
Here are some tips on how to arrange your learning and teaching safely.
