How to Use American Slang at the Movies

Learn how to use American slang at the movies in this Howcast ESL video featuring English teacher Megan Brach.


My name is Megan Brach. I have been teaching English as a second language for 4 years. Learning English is not fast nor is it easy, but I am going to help you get started. Are you ready? Let's learn English. So now I'm going to give you 3 slang expressions that you can use at the movies. First, 2 thumbs up, which means the movie was very very good. I give the new Harry Potter movie 2 thumbs up. Next, a bomb. Which means a movie was terrible. I would not go see the new comedy film. It was a bomb. And last, sold out which means there are no tickets left. For example, we got to the movie theater late and it was sold out. So those are 3 slang expressions you can use at the movies.
