Everyday English



It’s obvious that everyday language is significant. We use official words much rarely than non-official ones. That is why people who don’t know foreign slang have got a lot of problems in communication when they are in a new country. You don’t orientate yourself in non-official English, do you? Don’t bother! We’ll study together!

 Today we’re going to discuss English SMS-argot. This part of language is very influential. Nowadays the products of great writers are translated into. The famous Hamlet’s phrase is written like ‘2 b? Ntb? =?’ – "To be or not to be? That is a question’. As we see, SMS-argot must be known for people who’re going to communicate with foreigners equally.

 Well, that’s a time to meet with the most common SMS-phrases. Here they are.
