1. Read the text.

 

Text Messaging :-) or :-(

 
        The latest thing among British teenagers is text-messaging– sending little e-mails by phone to their friends. 
        96% of British students under 16 who have a mobile phone use their phones to send text messaging.  because it’s cheaper and more private than making calls. The craze has also produced its own language: GR8 2CU (Great to see you); RUOK (Are you Okay?); THX (Thanks);  :-( (No) and :’–( (I’m sad)… Nosy parents or teachers can’t understand it. For most adults this language is a code that only teenagers can handle.  “Text messaging is cheaper so I use it a lot more than phoning,” says Rachel. “The coolest thing is that my parents can’t read my messages. Isn’t that XLNT and GR8? :-) ?”
