What was the last text you sent?
Chances are it contains some kind of acronym or abbreviation.
We use ones like “LOL”, “TBH” and “XO” so much that they’re creeping into our spoken vocabulary, too.
Using slang over text is so much easier than writing out full sentences. That is, except for parents who can’t quite get it right.
Online text messaging is quickly becoming one of the most popular forms of communication. Right now, 2 billion people are using it worldwide. This number is bound to include your students, but do they know how to write text messages in English?
It’s totally different from the way we write and talk IRL. If your students are English text messaging noobs, you can use lots of fun activities to teach them how it all works.
By the end of your class, they’ll be woke AF.
