    Re: whats up

    Don't try to sound cool by using slang or informal language that does not come naturally to you. You will sound silly and not cool.

    What's up?
    How's it going?
    What's going on?
    How've you been? (for someone you haven't seen in a while)
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****

    Good morning, Battery.

    (1) Well, since you want to sound "cool" when you chat with other

    young people, I think (think) that many young people say:

    'Sup?

    That's a "cool" and short way to ask: What('s up)?

    See you later, alligator!!! (That's what "cool" people used to say many years ago. Today people will laugh at you if you say that.)
