    Synonyms or Slang

    Hi everybody,

    can you help me find a synonym, slang or funny expression for the word path/trail? something that describes an educational path, maybe a slang or way to say. not necessarily formal.

    Thank you

    Re: Synonyms or Slang

    Can you post a sentence or two demonstrating how you want to use the word?

    Welcome to the forum.

    Please note my corrections above. You need to work on your use of punctuation. Remember to end every sentence with one appropriate punctuation mark and always write in full sentences.

    Your example sentence is unnatural. What exactly do you mean by "The school path"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Synonyms or Slang

    Welcome, Eugenio!

    I don't think there's slang or a funny term for educational path.

    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
