Mari belajar "slangs" dalam bahasa Inggris

 Let’s  study  about  SLANGS.   Slangs are defined as the words and phrases used informally in any language. These expressions are usually formed and gain popularity locally before becoming accepted in informal speech all over. A problem with keeping track of slangs is that new additions are being made to the slang language on a daily basis.  Here  are   slangs that are commonly used today. And Maskatno Giri  also writes in  English-English- Indonesian
