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)

Hello, fresher ! I am an old member here. I think listening English songs and movies would be a good way to improve your listening and speaking and it is fun too, isn't it? :)

I like sometime in full and sometime in short word. I like to share some short word I send my friend phone text.
ATB- All The Best
N8- Night
Asap- AS soon as possible
BBL- Be Back Later
GB- Good Bye
HAND- HAVE A NICE DAY
IDK- I Do NOT KNOW
L8- Late
NVM- Never mind
It is really helpful to save my time when I am very busy doing anything else.
