If you want to work in Oz or America, I'd try learning English as your first step ;)

However I get the feeling that your post is some sort of lazy text message talk rather than inability to speak the language :(

Sorry, the bastardisation of the english language by txt tlk is my pet h8, m8. cul8r

I wonder how many "non-native English speakers" on here will be able to decipher your code? It wasn't that easy for me .

Hey lil l,

Are you related to lil j ?

lil-b's text jargon is easy enough to decipher. It's considered cool in certain circles, especially illiterate youth.

The other thing that I find rather annoying is blog talk outside blogs. In my opinion, it's just another perceived form of "clever" imagination by those that engage in it.

Welcome lil_b! Let me try my hands at deciphering that message.

"Where do u think me and m8 should be going? Where have u guys been to or what u think is best to go. We definitely want to go Australia and America and possibly, work in either country."
Do i get the gist of your message? But wait...what or who the h*** is "m8"?

Damn, i've lost touch with youth culture..

Hey lil_b

Can you combine your text lingo with some cockney rhyming slang?
