Student or Learner
If someone uses some slang, can I ask:
I don't understand what he is saying. Is it a? slang?
Is the article all right?
No need for the article.
"is it slang/is it a slang expression/is it a piece of slang...?'. "Slang" is not countable (though many forum members persist in treating it as if it were, and they will no doubt continue*...).
PS * A proverb comes to mind: 'You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink'.
