Eddie: He's gone to Blighty! I think he's gone to check out the Olympics in London.
Blighty - English slang for Great Britain.
Did you know?
Great Britain is the island that consists of England, Scotland and Wales (in red above).
The United Kingdom is Great Britain and Northern Island - plus many smaller islands surrounding Great Britain.
I not really understang this. Great Britain is an island. Great Britain is in Uk or it is UK. So, is it means that Uk is an Island. Is it your country in red over there in the pic? I thing I will have to learn geography...
Great Britain is the name of the island. The UK is Great Britain and Northern Ireland! England is part of GB and UK. It's very confusing.
Great! Thank you Teacher... I will have to check it more, it is interessant... :)
OK , I see now, Uk is a big island with little ones surrunding, I see a picture of stonehenge and that The Beatle come from Uk... I see picture from London. It is gorgeous... So you come from an island Teacher, great!!!
Is Great Britain the homeland of blight so we have this slang?
Great Britain is Blighty!
