Though it happens to be from back in the day, it is one of those British comedy series one can still watch today and get their ribs cracked.

The humor of the comedy results from the students’ misunderstanding of English words and terminologies.

For comedy purposes, using funny or unfamiliar terms or language could be amusing and hilarious, however in real life, it’s just the contrary.

Many teenagers today fancy the use of slangs, jargons  and the curse words  while speaking to teachers, parents, friends and any body else.

Sadly, they sometimes forget and use the same language in their class work assessment and exams often get them in trouble.

Among the many things that define someone, language is inclusive and one may be able to judge who you are just by the way you speak.

At times, you might even be judged wrongly just because of the way you talk.

The 16- year- old Gabriel Murungi says that he is rap and hip-hop music maniac thus ends up using a lot of slang.

“Unconsciously, I find myself using the slangs and curse a lot. I have definitely gotten into trouble many times because of the language. I find myself speaking to my parents and everybody else using slang,” admits Murungi.

Murungi says that most of his friends use slangs as well because it feels cool even though it might have negative implications for them.

Nelson Nsengiyumva, who once worked with a call center of a Telecommunication company, says that slangs and curse words made him lose his first job.

“I had grown up using slangs and curse words in school and it became an addiction. The first two incidents I was pardoned but made the same mistake again and I lost the job,” Nsengiyumva narrates.

He adds that it was hard for him to l find another job. He was always worried that if he applied for a new job, they would call up his old employees to find out about his conduct and why he left his previous job.

He emphasizes that youth should indeed mind their language because bad language might lead them into trouble in their academics and future careers.
