    Question Opposite

    Hi dear teachers!
    What's the opposite of the expression 'Long live....!'?
    What do people shout when they are protesting against something or somebody?
    Best regards!

    The more benign shouts might include: 'down with...', 'out with...'; in more extreme anarchic situations: 'death to', 'hang..burn...etc.'

    Could you give a few examples please? I'd be very grateful to you. Seeing expressions or words used in sentences makes it easier for learners to understand the use properly.
    Regards!

    Re: Opposite

    It is almost impossible to give a list since you can use anything as an anti-slogan. Here are some existing ones:


    'Oil is thicker than blood, and Bush is thicker than oil'
    'Bald Is Beautiful - No Bush'
    'Stop mad cowboy disease'
    "Bollocks to Blair"
    "Toe Knee Blur, Get Your Priorities Right"
    "I'm Tony Blair, Get Me Out Of Here"

    Since I'm learning more and more every day here in usingenglish dot com, I'm getting younger and younger. (i.e stronger and stronger in English) Did you like it?
    Thanks a lot for your nice and helpful guidance.
    Best regards!

    Do you think my English is getting better? What do you think the level of my English is now?
    Will I be able to become an English teacher in future? I actually wish to get a Uk qualification in ELT.
    Regards!
