CURSO: Español actual, neologismos y expresiones comunes en los jóvenes de hoy

En todos los países los jóvenes utilizan un vocabulario que no sigue los usos normales, pero que con el paso del tiempo acaban formando parte del lenguaje común de la población e incluso del lenguaje académico. En español, los “milenials” “pasan” de los “bomers”, no porque sean “haters” sino porque los que consideran “cancelados”, en especial porque no les gusta su “postureo”. Estas palabras de uso común, más otras recientemente aceptadas por la Real Academia, como guasapear, agendar o flipar, hacen del castellano una lengua dinámica, pero ese dinamismo obliga a los profesores que lo enseñan a tener que refrescar sus conocimientos constantemente.

Lengua de enseñanza: Español (inglés cuando sea imprescindible).
