Hi there

In this week’s hint, we will be looking at net language specifically acronyms.

Let us first define acronym

Acronym is any abbreviation formed from the first letters of words or a phrase and is pronounced as a word.

Most native speakers of English use acronyms when writing txt messages, emails or even during a conversation. Thus I thought it useful for you to learn.
