Language: informaI, formal or slang?
Submitted by Imogen Stewart on 13 April 2006.
Two resources based on ‘Little Britain’: aimed at teenage students but can be adapted for other groups. The introductory PPT cleverly introduces the idea of formality/informality by looking at dress codes, ‘chavs’ and Vicky Pollard from Little Britain! Then moves on to give good examples of formal/informal language and slang.
The accompanying PDF file includes: matching slang to more formal language, writing definitions of slang that you use, listening activities using the Little Britain Audio CD.
