AEE 38: Survival English for Your Next Island Vacation

AEEArtworkToday you will get survival English tips and phrases for your next vacation to an island nation!

The tips are from our special guest who is from Trinidad.

English from Trinidad is a mix of English, French, Spanish, and a few other languages that have been mixed together and the language has evolved over time.

Here are the phrases that Matt taught us:

  • “Allyuh”: “All of you”
  • “Aye-yah-yie”: “Wow”- this word can be an expression of extreme pleasure of pain
  • “Ent”: “Isn’t it?”- this is a tag question that is used at the end of a sentence to look for agreement from the listener.
  • “Fuh true?”: “Is it true?” or “truthfully?”

 

Don’t forget to get the premium transcripts if you want to move your English from upper intermediate to advanced!
