For 12 & 13 I said "around" instead of "round." Americans say it with the "a," and the British say it without.

I've never heard 6 before, "She a bit of all right." Definitely not a part of American English.

I don't know enough English, but i think the phrases have been taken from an British English book.
Thank you very much.
Félix.

"She's a bit of alright" is definitely (or at least we use it a hell of a lot) British/Australian. You would hear this phrase in a typical pub all around Australia. It basically means the girl the person is talking about is good looking.
