Could teachers contribute phrases meaning "skipping classes", I'm interested in formal and informal usage in American, Australian, and British dialects.

Example:
International
"I skipped that class."

:D

We skip class here (USA) too. We also cut class. We also use ditch to mean something similar, altho we probably use that more often with people. Example: "Let's ditch Bob the first chance we get. He's just too boring."
