Do you use a lot of English slang in your everyday conversations with natives?
In today’s episode you’ll find out how to use the words “crazy” and “insane” as slang words in conversations.
How to use the word “crazy” in a slang form:
The slang words “crazy” and “insane” mean wild and out of control.
They could also mean unexpected or out of control.
The words are also used a lot in song lyrics, especially love songs.
If you use these words in a literal way to describe someone who is mentally ill it is rude.
Instead you could say that they are “mentally disabled” or “mentally handicapped” or “mentally challenged.”
