Language is a passport to a culture. Slang, probably the most lively part of a language, is especially so. Understanding of a culture's slang is a great lens through which to know the authentic life of the members in that culture. Slang can also serve to spice up conversations with these members.In this light, a collection is made of undergraduate college students' slang-by college students themselves. For authenticity, more attention is given to comprehensiveness than to political correctness, although racist terms are avoided. This concise collection promises to give you a better understanding of and a closer connection with undergraduate college students.
