English slang you need to know

Don't be a badass and learn to use the main English slang on the internet!

You know that bunch of abbreviations and acronyms and slang in English that appear on social media and that you're dying to know how to use? So it is! This is also important for your English! In this article you will find a very wide list of the main slang in English, you will learn how to create your abbreviations and understand what slang is.

Just as in Portuguese we abbreviate a lot when writing on social networks, in English it is no different. In addition to abbreviations, there are several slangs out there that, if not known, can cause some confusion when it comes to understanding.

But, what is slang?

Slang is slang. It is a very old form that is part of informal language, day to day, radio, TV, cinema and especially the internet.

Therefore, our objective here is to know the main internet slang, those that always appear on social networks. Notice that I didn't select slang like LOL, ASAP, FYI because they are used a lot even by Brazilians. Here I will show you common abbreviations among native speakers, which are not so well known in Brazil, ok?

Why is English slang so important?

As the English language (and all the others) is constantly evolving, it turns out that the difference between fluent and non-fluent speakers is precisely the knowledge and use of these colloquial expressions.

And as everyone here wants to evolve and always learn (because even those who already know English never stop learning), we can't leave the slang behind.

No small talk, let's get to them!

In the video, I explain in detail the following abbreviations
