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.
Below are some short texts with their meanings and examples on how to use them.
How to Use Them
They are easy to use. Just put the characters where you would type the word. For example:
|A: Are you free next Tuesday?
A: I have two free tickets to the cinema. I want to see the ‘Avengers! movie.
B: Oh my god. I want to see it too.
A: I’m busy now. I’ll talk to you later.
|A: R u free next Tuesday?
A: I have 2 free tickets 2 the cinema. I want to c da ‘Avengers’ movie.
B: OMG. I want to c it 2
A: I’m busy now. ttyl
Try It Out
See if you can understand the sentences below.
|A: I’m going 2 da ‘Live House’ tomorrow. My friends and I R going to perform. Do u want 2 come?
B: K. I will b there 4 the food.
A: K. I’ll C U there.
Isn’t it easy to use? Many English speakers around the world use them everyday to make things easy. We don’t use them for business, but only with friends and family.
