Hello!! And welcome back to this week’s blog at Connect Eikaiwa (コネクト英会話). This is going to be a fun topic because we can use it every day on our mobile phones texting our friends.

Shorthand texts are very useful. You may text your friends many long sentences or you can type fewer words and save a lot of time.
