As you travel the world and come in contact with people from other countries and from other parts of the English-speaking world, we will often come across words that are used as local slang. To people from the region where the word is used, it is commonplace. To outsiders, the word is nonsense. Language variations often make English even more enjoyable. Just when you thought you have mastered the language you learn that Chips are French Fries in London. These worksheets help students explore and understand common variations in language.
