On 9th of April, 2013, the Institute of Translotology and Multilanguage Studies held a master class “Language and society. Youth slang in the modern French languages”, led by Benjamin Imof, a trainee from France. Using interesting examples of slang from movies, TV programs and printed sources he showed that French slang is an interesting social and cultural phenomenon that reflects the youth’s world-view. At the end of the meeting students translated texts in slang into the literary language.
