"Chinatown" media of Chinese Australians

When studying abroad, you often deal with foreigners but don’t know how to use the correct terms? Today's article is here to save you who are facing such problems. Don’t be too moved~ Take a small notebook to write it down, it’s better to just write it in your head~

English vocabulary is very long. You have to type a long time every time you chat with a foreigner with a message? It must take a long time for them to initiate text messages with English speakers! In fact, the editor thought so at the beginning, but later I learned that people have their own abbreviations for English words. For example, use initials for phrases, like the familiar ASAP (as soon as possible) and WTF (no explanation, you know). Another example is to replace words with numbers, 4=for. There is also abbreviation with consonants in words, such as tmr=tomorrow. This article brought to you today sorts out some commonly used English abbreviations. From now on, it’s not a problem!

OIC—Oh I see (I see)


BRB—Be right back


B4N—Bye for now


LOL—Laughing out loud (Laughing out loud)


ASAP—As soon as possible


JK—Just kidding (just a joke)


BTW—By the way (by the way)


WRU—Where are you? (Where are you?)


NP—No problem (no problem)


RUOK—Are you ok? (Are you okay?)
