Slangs are important as they are part of a language but they're not everything you need to learn in order to sound fluent

 

But just like your native language, it's important to know all aspects of it so you can communicate with all kinds of people in various situations

 

I feel a lot of people think they know English well enough to talk to anyone on the streets or on internet chats but when they have to face a job interview or a more formal situation, they'll get stuck.. or they will use inapropriate words and sound too slangy.

 

It's cool to use slangs when you're talking to your friends but do not rely on slangs when it comes to your English skills...
