Exclamations help us express strong emotions.
We use them much more frequently than we think we do. And yet, we seem to use exclamations without thinking at all! They just fall out of our mouths before we know it.
And this is why they can be so tricky. Because they often fall out in our native language!
But don’t worry. We’ve got you covered. Here are some frequently used exclamations for you to practise.
Each one has a slightly different meaning and feeling behind it. Which is great when it comes to talking to British people (as they tend to hide their feelings). You can learn a lot about what they really think by which exclamation they choose!
