    Where I can find some abbreviations

    Because I need to take note quickly, I need a stable abbreviation system.
    I can create it by myself but it seems to be hard to remember or I feel it's confused.
    I hope you tell me where I can find abreeviations similar to "statement=stmt, because=cuz".
    I can't find words like that in many acronyms dictionaries. When I type stmt, it define " superplastic thermomech. treatment" , cuz ~> airport code: Cusco, Peru
    Thanks in advance for your aid.

    Thank you, that's great.
    But its words seem to be not pragmatic for me to take note on learning material (look more pragmatic on chatting)

    For your own use, creating your own list is far more practical. You can then order it in the way that suits you.

    Re: Where I can find some abbreviations

    Yes, I agree with Anglika. I cannot recommend a perfect set of abbreviations for you, as I do not know the words that you often need to use; but I believe you can create your personal set of abbreviations. It may take some time for you to get familiarised with your abbreviations (be patient), but you will gradually get on track.

    I can share some of my often-used abbreviations with you - some of them are very commonly used.

    w/ = with
    w/o = without
    T = teacher
    Ss = students
    T and L = teaching and learning
    cont. = continue(d)
    corr. = correction
    +ve = positive
    -ve = negative
    PTO = please turn over
    asap = as soon as possible
    SVP = s'il vous plaît (French, meaning "please")
    Gd = good
