5 English Slang Words You Can Use in Daily Conversation

Have you ever think to upgrade your English use to be more native-likely and use the slang to look more used to it? Then you should know some more commonly used English slang words below!

1. Hang Out (Verb)

If someone asks you where you usually hang out, they want to know in which place you prefer to be when you have free time. And if your friend asks you if you want to hang out with them, they’re asking you if you’re free and want to spend some time together.

Example 1)

“Hey, it’s great to see you again.”

“And you. We must hang out sometime.”

2. Chill Out (Verb)

Everybody loves to chill out but what does it mean? It simply means to relax. Usually it can be used with or without the word ‘out’ and if you’re speaking with an American English speaker they’ll definitely understand.

Example 1)

“Hey Tommy, what are you guys doing?”

“We’re just chilling (out). Do you want to come round?”

3. Have a Crush [on Somebody] (Verb)

To have a crush on somebody is a great feeling and it means that you’re attracted to somebody and would like them to be more than just friend. And if somebody has a crush on you, well it’s the same—they like you in a more intimate way.       

Example 1)

“I have the biggest crush on Simon. He’s so cute!”

4. Epic Fail (Noun)

The word epic means ‘huge’ and you know what the word ‘fail’ already means. Put the two words together and that’s what it is – a ‘big failure’ or ‘complete disaster/failure’. You’d used this noun when something hasn’t gone the right way as expected and it’s used to exaggerate the idea of failing or doing something wrong.     

Example 1)

“The school basketball team lost the game by 30 points, can you believe it?”

“Yeah, epic fail!”

5. Dunno (Contraction)

Simply speaking, dunno means ‘I don’t know’. It’s a quicker and lazier way of saying it and it’s very popular among young people. However, do be careful who you say this to – if you say it to someone in a higher position than you it could come across as rude. So to play it safe just use it around people your own age or younger.

Example 1)

“Where’s Jane? She’s supposed to be here by now.”

Dunno, she’s always late!”
