Apparently "marvellous" is not used in English, only "awesome".

On the other hand we are English which is marvellous, definitely not
awesome.

Actually I am at a loss to know what is actually awesome in this day and
age. I used to think it was stuff like The Grand Canyon, but apparently
anything from Hollywood or New York is now awesome. Language is such a
fluid thing. Which is clearly awesome.
