Spoken English Course Day 27

Date: Mar 23 2011

Topic: Idioms and Slang

Author: andylu2


Hi guys,

How's it going?  I just watched a movie with Owen Wilson.  I forget the name of the movie but I think he's hilarious in anything, even in romantic comedies. 

Romantic comedies are often called "chick flicks"

"Chick" is a slang term for girls, usually of dating age, and "flick" is a slang term for movie.  So a "chick flick" is a set phrase that refers to the type of movies that girls normally like more than guys. 

Anyway, I thought you might want to know that term in case you want to tell your girlfriend, "Honey, can I pick the movie today?  I really don't want to see another chick flick".

Actually, some chick flicks are kind of funny though.  Haha.

Anyway, if you want to learn more, check out my free spoken English course and the free PDF ebooks on there.

Also, here is the first day of my English Speaking course that I write everyday on here.
