Okay, I've got several questions on Brit-speak.
First of all, would the students actually 'graduate' from Hogwarts at the end of seventh-year? Is 'graduation' a term you use like we do when it comes to high school and college?
Also, is it okay to interchange the words 'kiss' and 'friend' for 'snog' and 'mate'? Because I feel like I'm forcing it if I ALWAYS us 'snog' and 'mate.' I guess because it just doesn't always feel natural to my American tongue, lol.
Finally, do guys and girls 'go out' or 'go steady'? Do they 'break up' or 'dump' each other? I'm just wondering how you refer to these fun things.
