What are your favourite British films, Paulina? Some of the lingo might be quite tough as it's localised.
Oh, I don't know - I've seen so many films in my life... ;) I always loved those adaptations of English literature with Emma Thompson, Helena Bonham Carter, Anthony Hopkins, Kenneth Branagh, etc. Emma Thompson is one of my favourite actresses :) I like Monty Python and "The Black Adder" TV series, some comedy films. And "Wallace & Gromit" ;)
And I like Harry Potter, though I'm too old for this :PPP Don't laugh ;)))

Yes, that's true... But on Polish TV foreign films are translated so it's no problem ;)
But when I'm watching films without translation I have more problems with understanding British English, than American (probably because of this lack of exposure ;)).
And I guess I don't know much British slang. I remember that when I had some BBC channel I watched "EastEnders" and there a girl was called "bird" (?) and a man: "bloke". I didn't know that before ;) I also tried to watch some TV series about a castle in Scotland and the Scottish pronunciation made it very difficult ;) I had an impression that they spoke with gritted teeth or something ;) But I like those Scottish and Irish accents :P
