I do not usually use short words in a chat, but when I use them, the ones I use most are u2, 4ever, in an English chat.
In a chat in Spanish, I abbreviated the short words, for example I put "q" instead of putting "que" and so, but only when I'm in a hurry.

For instance pls, btw. I am keen on short-messages. If I chat with my friend to have a stroll or to go to the cinema I use emoji keyboard.

Messages sent in texting style make it easier to chat with each other. So I prefer writing in text style while chatting with friends and family :P

Hi Persianman, that's a very good question and I think a lot of people feel the same as you! Speaking a language is a practical skill and therefore needs a lot of practice. Think of it like learning to swim - it's not enough for someone to describe to you exactly how to do it. You need to get in the water and practise! In the same way, it's not enough to simply know grammar and words. You need lots of practise with using them to communicate. So practise, practise, practise! Writing comments on LearnEnglish teens is a great way of improving. And look out for our new speaking skills section. Good luck and keep up the good work! :) Joanna (LearnEnglish Teens team)

Can you give me some advice, what should I do to improve my English skills? Thank you for answers. Have a nice day! :)
