This blog is really wonderful. I am a High School English Teacher in Manipur, India and I am very much eager to associate myself with Macmillan.
Excellent blog with very useful and up to date buzzwords. But what makes it so complete is the additional background information and the origins of the words. Any English language lecturer/teacher should tune into this blog!
Ipod I though would be another well used term in everyday life. Well, at school the students say ipod a fair amount of times, as with other terms stated above. The use of American terms seems to be growing in uses with the media and people are repeating such terms as staycation. Walking bus for young children is good and the word metro sexual seems to be used a lot more after the Beckham factor. What about games console or text message?
