United Kingdom by jordan hicks

The United Kingdom, also called the U.K., consists of a group of islands off the northwest coast of Europe.
In the south of England, the countryside is mostly rolling hills.
Thames, Severn, and Tyne are the 3 Major Rivers in the UK.
Much of the north and west of the U.K. is covered in high ground, knife-edged mountain ridges separated by deep valleys.
Thousands of years ago, these woodlands were cleared by ancient farmers, and today only about 10 percent of the land is forest.
1. ‘Knackered’ – a great word and phrase used by Britons to describe their tiredness and exhaustion, in any given situation.
‘Cheers’ doesn’t quite have the same meaning that it does in other counties – of course, it still means ‘celebrations’ when toasting a drink with some friends, but in British slang, it also means ‘thanks’ or ‘thank you’.
Not a wonderfully melodic word, ‘chunder’ is part and parcel of British slang terms. Meaning ‘to vomit’ or ‘to be sick’, ‘chunder’ is almost always used in correlation with drunken nights, or being hugely ill and sick.
‘Fortnight’ – a British slang term more commonly used by virtually everyone in the UK to mean ‘a group of two weeks’.
In British slang terms, ‘dodgy’ refers to something wrong, illegal, or just plain ‘off’, in one way or another.
