Hey, have you seen Scott?
Umm, he's been M.I.A. all morning.
I need to find him ASAP. Can you call him for me?
Umm, FYI, I'm not his secretary.
Ok...
Hi, I'm Kelsi from VT English.
Today, I'm going to teach you 10 acronyms that are used in everyday English.
ASAP
ASAP stands for "as soon as possible." It can be used in written English like in
emails, or texts, or in spoken English. You can either say A-S-A-P, or ASAP.
Are you done the report yet?
Not yet. When do you need me to get it finished?
ASAP.
RSVP
In English, we use RSVP as a way to say "respond" when it comes to invitations.
It's common to write or say "Please RSVP by..." a certain date.
But, it actually come from the French "Répondez s'il vous plaît"
which means "please respond."
Ex-boyfriend
RSVP for his wedding?!
N/A
N/A means "not applicable."
This is often seen on forms or questionnaires.
So, when a question doesn't apply to you, you can circle or write "N/A."
Total: 0 bf
Forever alone
AKA
"AKA" stands for "also known as."
It's used to refer to another name for someone or something.
You-Know-Who AKA
He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named AKA
The-Dark-Lord AKA
Tom Riddle AKA
Voldemort
P.S.
P.S. means "postscript" which comes from the
Latin "postscriptum" meaning "written after."
It's used to add a thought after an email or letter has been completed.
Dear Scott, I haven't been able to find you all day.
I really miss you. If you get this letter, give me a call.
From, Kelsi
P.S. You still owe me $5!
ETA
"ETA" stands for "estimated time of arrival."
It can be written or spoken, and is used to indicate when someone or something will arrive at a destination.
What's your ETA?
15 minutes later
Hello?
Where are you?
Yo?
TBD
"TBD" means "to be determined."
It's used when something hasn't been decided on yet but will be in the future.
Alright, these are the details for our next meeting.
Time: TBD
Location: TBD
FYI
"FYI" stands for "for your information."
People often use this when forwarding an email to someone
as a way to quickly tell them that this information might relate to them.
You can also say FYI, but be careful because
it can sometimes sound a bit rude.

TBA
"TBA" means "to be announced."
It's used when something will be announced in the future.
Music festival!
TBA... TBA... TBA...
MIA
MIA stands for "missing in action."
It was originally used to describe soldiers that went missing during war,
but today, people also use it casually to say that someone has disappeared.
Scott's been MIA all day!
Fine, I'll text him again.
Finally...
Where are you?!?!?!?
Yes!
