One can talk in any language by learning. But have you wondered how to speak like natives? There is something that every language assimilates in itself, which makes it unique and gives certain emotions the exact expression. Isn’t it? This article is all about that particular secret ingredient. Nah, I’m not getting into the zone of grammar, parts of speech, figure of speech. Nope! I am speaking about:

Yes, Slang words are the secret. While we talk to people have you ever put a count on the informal words that are common in speech and never appear in writing? Try it and you will see the omnipresence of the slang words in every friendly conversation.
