How to become hip???

Hi ChinesePod team, my question is this:

I’ve been learning Chinese for some time now, and I feel like even though my speaking skills are pretty good, they still sound pretty “textbook” like I wouldn’t fit in with other teenagers. Where do I learn relevant slang/pop culture so that I can better understand references among my peers? Please teach me how to be “cool” :sweat_smile:

Hey there!

I totally understand what you mean. I’ve listed some of our lessons below that teach slang or more informal vocabulary. We also have a youtube playlist dedicated to slang, which I’ve linked below as well. Aside from those, I would highly recommend watching TV series or movies to learn Chinese in its context or storyline.
