In this video English lesson, part of my Daily Dose of English series from 2010-2011, I look at Cockney
Today’s Daily Dose is in response to a video request from Christophe in France. “Hello Richard. My name is Christophe and I live in France. Thank you for this very innovative way of teaching English. Richard, could you tell us more about Cockney. A few years ago I went to London and British fans taught me some very funny Cockney expressions. Thank you.” Before I start, I should point out that I am not a Cockney. Cockney is a term used to define a geographic area known as the East End of London. Linguistically, that is from a language point of view, it refers to the type of English spoken by the people who live in the East End.
