What are your thoughts on this?
I found it interesting that when I was taking English classes to learn English, Slang words were never taught. Though they are used often in communication and throughout the English speaking world ( Unfortunately ) these were never covered nor taught. Same to be said of the Spanish classes I had to assist in, Slang Spanish terms and phrases are never taught. Why is this, as I would like to hear your thoughts and/or theories on this matter. Do you think not teaching these slang phrases in either language is a good decision, or a bad one?
