    Default please help for reasons

    -Bloke- this is colloquial and only appropriate in certain contexts. It is also British English and not used in American English, so it requires a knowledge on international variants and social context to use it.
    and this is another true explainig about "bloke "
    -Bloke is not a word for early use.I would definitely not teach beginners is bloke. That is because it is a British colloquialism-quite informal.
    *what about these ones about reasons for not teaching Beginners some of the other words simply in this way??

    *what about this one about reasons for not teaching Beginners some of the other words simply in this way?? Seems sensible. Are you regarding the words below as in this group?
