Brenda's blog - The Great Scouse Challenge!

By kroberts 19 Jan 2018

Hello everybody!

My name is Brenda, I made this video back when I was a future international student who was going to be moving to Liverpool from Lima, Peru for a semester abroad.

In preparation for my arrival the Halls' Student Experience Team set me the challenge of speaking scouse.

I think I didn't do too bad but see what you think.

  • "Goin’ the ozzy.”- What it means: Visiting hospital

  •  “Jib it off.”- What it means: To decide against doing something

  •  “The arl  fella.”- What it means: Your father.

  •  "Antwacky.”- What it means: Outdated or old-fashioned.

  •  “Gegging in.”- What it means: When someone invites themselves to a social event; an unwanted tag-along

  • “New kecks and trabs.”- What it means: New trousers and trainers.

  •  “Going to town.”- What it means: To give someone a stern telling off
