Mensagem: 

  Sidney, I agree with Fran about the slangspeak, spoken in Slangland. Plus, I guess that is in your spare time (not to 'serious' studies)

   Thus, some interesting parts of her comment. 


"...those living abroad would be to pay close attention to the native speakers around and try to pick up "local" slangs. "

 


"Local slangs are definitely more effective than obscure slang from an ESL book. "

 


"I am not trying to say that slang itself changes that fast but new slangs do come about every once in a while."    So, try to use only the ones that turned into "hits".

 


"MTV and VH1 are good sources for new or current slang but again I'd stick to more local slang if I was to try to use it."
