Do your students still say “on fleek”? Probably not. Alas, teen slang persistently evolves, so if you’re reading this past August 2021, chances are your kids have moved on to more contemporary expressions.
So how up to date are you on the latest teen slang? Take our quiz and find out if you are “cheugy” or “sic.”
