What is slang

Slang is no different from colloquial English, which is used especially by young people. Be careful when using informal words; You should never say slang words when talking to your boss or supervisor, the elderly, or teachers. Colloquial language should only be used among friends, colleagues or good acquaintances.

Slang words are often unofficial words that can be found in a dictionary; they are often derived from other words or slang expressions. For example: I have a friend named John. He's always super nice to me, but behind my back he talks badly about me. So he's my enemy to some extent, right? So John is mine frenemy (friend + enemy). This slang word comes from two well-known words.
