Hey there,

I hope you are all doing good and welcome back to your home ‘Your English Vocabulary’- The place for every English learner who has struggled a lot with their English skills and wants to improve their spoken English and vocabulary.

Slangs cover almost 20 to 30 percent of native informal conversations. It is for this reason they should never be ignored in English learning process as they might void an important aspect of your informal conversation. In case you don’t know what they are and how to use them, make sure you check out the first part of this article where I talked about slangs in detail and when to use them- 10 slangs you should know.

Since they are so important, it kind of struck my mind to write the second part of it.

After all, they are so important.

So without further ado, let get down to the business and see some of the more commonly used slang in spoken English:
