ENGLISH LESSON

IRV loves to twerk, has many-a girl crush, loves cake pops and reports on buzz worthy things such as the latest list of English words to be added to the Oxford Dictionaries Online.
Just to be clear, these words are only in the online edition and will not necessarily be included in the official dictionary. Here is the full link of the words and below are some of our favourites:
• digital detox, n.: a period of time during which a person refrains from using electronic devices such as smartphones or computers, regarded as an opportunity to reduce stress or focus on social interaction in the physical world.
• flatform, n.: a flat shoe with a high, thick sole.
• selfie, n. (informal): a photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website.

• twerk, v.: dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance.

• unlike, v.: withdraw one’s liking or approval of (a web page or posting on a social media website that one has previously liked).
