Hi, my name is Jessica. I’m an English tutor, and in today’s lesson, we’ll be talking about slang English.
And the word for today is “creep.”
So, you may be wondering what exactly does “a creep” mean?
A creep is an unpleasantly weird or strange person who makes you feel really uncomfortable.
So recently, I had somebody like stand right next to me and get about this far from my face
and just stare like for an extended period of time. It totally creeped me out! I was like, that is super super weird.
You don’t do that. I don’t know you. That is a person that I would kind of describe as creepy or weird.
So somebody who maybe doesn’t understand personal space and you don’t know,
who’s making you feel very uncomfortable, in slang English you would probably refer to that person as a creep.
So it’s somebody that gives you the creeps. Now, this word can be used to describe men or women.
So a creep can be either way.
So let’s say you had this like really really unusual woman come up to you,
wanting to know your weight and when was the last time you ate and this is a person you’ve never met before;
she would really probably creep you out, like really creep you out because that’s not normal stuff that strangers ask.
All right so I hope this lesson on “creep” has been helpful for you and that you tune in again for more lessons with Jessica.
