VocaTube - Vocabulary about abbreviations and acronyms in English

Do you know the meaning of FYI, ASAP or LOL? Not really too sure? Don’t worry, this new post on the VocaTube series comes to the rescue.

Moreover, videos are sorted according to the levels of difficulty (from the elementary to the advanced level) so you’ll be able to jump and watch only the ones you’re interested in.
