*In UK English, ‘holiday’ is the same as ‘vacation.’ A one day public holiday is called a ‘bank holiday’. A day’s leave because you need a break or are sick is called ‘a day off’. The ‘weekend’ is not ‘a day off’, or ‘a public holiday’. It’s the weekend!
 
*Notice that with ‘lunch’, ‘breakfast’ and ‘dinner’, do not use ‘a’.
 
*‘Have a word with s/o’ usually means a quick chat about something quite important.
