Imagine that this summer you decide to travel and do a summer course abroad. You stay with a local family and start making native friends. When you have to talk to them on whatsapp or social networks, you will discover that there are very common and used expressions and abbreviations, just like in Spanish.
Use of abbreviations in English
Abbreviations and acronyms in English are used above all in conversations on mobile phones and on social networks, although many of them have become part of spoken expressions.
For example, if you have an appointment and are waiting, they could send you a whatsapp like "OMW" to tell you that they are on their way. Or if they were looking forward to Friday and it finally is, they could put "TGIF" on you. If you've made good friends, they might tell you that you're their "BFF."
So that you don't get left behind, we tell you the meaning of 20 English abbreviations that are widely used on a daily basis.
