 Description
 
Many dictionaries treat slang as part of language that is not worth learning. Your teacher may also prefer to focus on King's English. With SuperMemo you may boast of being the best in the class but ... your feelings are hurt when you have to admit in a social situation that you do not understand an American movie. You may discover in pain that your investment in English polished with the BBC and CNN is not enough to understand a simple-spoken soul walking the streets of New York or London. Does gangsta rap sound like a language from another planet? If you memorize this compact Slang collection, you will quickly realize that despite its richness, slang is highly repetitive and understanding a fraction of slang vocabulary will do most of the job. Here are some word and phrases that will quickly become very useful: You dig?, Yo!, chick, hooter, nope, grand, boobs, loco, etc. You will also learn some less frequently used interpretations of words such as: peach, dough, joint, rubber, blast, john, bishop, marbles, etc.

You will also learn a new way of expressing yourself in a cool way:
So, wadda ya gonna do, buddy? -- Ya gonna step on me balls? -- I gotta earn a livin' too, ya know! -- Dig it?

Q: So, wadda ya gonna do, buddy? (sl)
