Chill is a little word that does a lot. As a slang term, we use it in many different situations. The actor Chace Crawford talks about having chill parties with his cast mates from the new movie Twelve. You might also have a chill friend, or hang out in a chill spot. In all these cases, chill means relaxed, low-key, and cool.

We can also use chill as a verb. When you chill with your friends, you hang out and socialize with them. But if someone isn’t acting cool, you might tell him to chill out, or calm down. And if someone asks you “What’s up?” you might tell him you’re “just chillin’.” That means you’re not doing anything, you’re just relaxing, taking it easy.

What are some chill spots to hang out in your city or village? How often do you chill with your friends?
