Social Slang Words
Many words in the English language have more than one meaning. Slang words are words that are used in conversation differently than their definitions in a dictionary. Friends often use slang when speaking to one another; however, they are not typically appropriate in a professional setting such as a work setting. Below are social slang words friends often use when getting together.
Speaker: “Let’s hang out on Saturday and watch a movie.”
Your turn: Write a sentence inviting a friend to get together:
Speaker: “On Friday I plan on just chilling and going to the pool after lunch.”
Your turn: Write a sentence describing where you’d like to be chilling:
Speaker: “Do you know what time the movie is playing?”
Friend: “I dunno, but I can look it up on my phone.”
Your turn: Write a question in which you would answer “I dunno.”
Speaker: “Have you seen Luis’s new pad? It’s huge with five bedrooms!”
Your turn: Write a sentence using the word pad to describe your dream home.
