    – Some people say that people who use slang are lazy. Do you agree?

    I’ve never thought about this option…but I don’t think so. Slang is an important part of a language, it’s the addition of the “cultural note”. Moreover, I believe that people are influenced by the way of speaking of the people they mix with.

    – How difficult is it for you to use slang in English? To understand slang?

    I can’t use slang in English yet, I still need to improve my English level 😳and it’s REALLY difficult for me to understand it.

    – In your opinion, do you need to use slang to communicate with non-native speakers?

    I think it’s not essential to use it but it’s absolutely crucial to understand it. Of course, using it would get my way of speaking richer and more authentic.

    – When should you not use slang?

    In formal situations.

    Thanks for this @Wanda – I like this idea: it’s the addition of the “cultural note”
