    You're not a bad sort / You're not a bad lass

    Hi there

    In conversations with a British man, he's used the phrases below, please could someone help explain what these mean?

    You're not a bad sort.
    You're not a bad lass.

    Thanks in advance,
    kris702

    I can understand your problem with the first because "sort" has an unusual meaning there. It roughly means "type of person".

    However, what are your problems with the second sentence? It's fairly literal. Do you understand each individual word?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
