ESL English Lesson: Trench talk…and how we use it today when speaking
David Robinson

Today, let’s talk about some words that are used in everyday English that originate from the trenches of World War One. Really? You’d be surprised just how many words there are, for example, bloke, binge drink, wash out, and snapshot. Research has been done by military historian Peter Doyle and Julian Walker, an etymologist, who have analysed thousands of documents from the period to trace how language changed during the period.

Words from wartime, Dictation, Reading, Vocabulary, Trench Talk, Let's write an email, Sentence Starters, Discussion, Grammar, Spelling Test, etc.
