What is American slang?

American slang includes words and phrases that are used in an informal way to form an identity of a group of people. At first, American slang referred to the vocabulary of people with a bad reputation. American slang, just like every slang, is constantly changing. Since so many people use American slang nowadays, English learners from many countries want to learn American slang to understand the informal speech of native speakers and to be able to communicate with them. American slang opens a door to learning more about the local culture and history. Moreover, it creates a feeling of belonging and unite the local community. Learning American slang is a way to stay current with the local expressions and dialect and become part of the community.
