If you plan to visit London, speak with Londoners understand TV shows and films set in London or characters from London then you need to understand the cockney. In this video everything will be explained by a London legend (ok, maybe not a legend, rather some geezer from London we found in the pub). You'll learn about the pronunciation, typical expressions and Cockney rhyming slang. Absolutely everything. And I ain't telling porkies neither.

Famous cockneys include: David Beckham, Adele, Michael Caine, Jason Statham, Amy Winehouse,

We recommend that you switch on the subtitles for this video (unless you're a cockney).

As a native German speaker Cockney reminds me a bit of Australian slang...

This is gold. My grandad was from the East End and he certainly spoke like this, accent and rhyming slang both. Sadly I became a lifelong West Ham fan as a result.

I hate cockneys, especially their squeaky voices; part of the normal north/south divide, I suppose. I've met a Glaswegian, in fact lived with one for a year, flat-sharing, and we got on just fine. Had cockneys as neighbours for a year, OMG, totally entitled.

What a trip! I'm an American. I went to prison when I was a kid. I learned to talk like your LVL 3 Cockney. Ours was a bit different though. For example. Twist and twirl, that's your girl. Groan and moan, that's the phone. Bottle and stopper, that's the copper. Look and leer, that's the tier. Smooth and rough, that's the stuff. (heroin). Gag and choke, that's the smoke. (cannabis) Ike and Mike, that's the spike. (usually a syringe but can be a shank). There's a couple that don't rhyme too, I don't know why. Like heel and toe = man walking (cop coming) So a conversation would sound like. Hey homie, heel and toe on look and leer. Watch the Ike. I'm gonna get on this groan and moan to the twist and twirl and get some money for some gag and choke. Anyway, most of them tend to the illegal side of life. The guy who taught me said he was told it was an Australian convict thing. Imagine my surprise finding it here. Hope you're just as surprised to hear it used there.

Cockney is ridiculous, I have been to London and no one talked like that. Probably some low life junkies still talk like that.

It’s not an accent, it’s an impediment. Even though my entire family is from parts of Europe, but primarily England. I would be embarrassed by someone speaking in this manner. Even Americans with speech impediments use certain consonants in the wrong place. I went to school with a girl that said, “Birfday”. Others also incorrectly use the V, B, H etc. To me it has always implied a simple or dim witted brain function. Not the least bit attractive or acceptable unless you’re mentally challenged and can’t help it.

Dammit. Lady Godiva? So that's what Freddy meant in his song?
I'm feeling so bread crumb (just wanted to get in the mood with the rhymes)
