3.What do you call a man (the same goes for man)?
4.What would you say you do when you hang out with mates?
5.List five body parts (in Cockney)
6.What are you wearing at the moment (in Cockney)?
7.What do you say when you feel happy (or cheerful), sad (or depressed), tired (or exhausted), in love?Provide some examples:
8.Can you comment on the latest news (in Cockney,of course)?
9.Where and how often do you speak Cockney?
10.Can you comment on living in your city/town and the school/university you graduated (of course in Cockney)
