2. Use - Learn how the slang is used.

One of the saddest things in life is when a friend _ditch_es you. I remember when I was in elementary school and my best friend _ditch_ed me for another friend.
At first, I didn’t realize that she had _ditch_ed me. I thought that she was just really busy. Then I started noticing that she was always busy, doing stuff with this other girl. Slowly, I started to realize that my best friend had _ditch_ed me.
Since then, I have been really careful not to ditch my friends because I know that it hurts people’s feelings. Have you ever been _ditch_ed by a friend, a boyfriend or a girlfriend?

Examples

1. Examples - Hear some example sentences.

””This idea isn’t working. We need to ditch it and come up with a better solution.”
“This is the fifth time that my car has broken down in the past year. I think I am going to ditch it and get another one.”
“I can’t believe that you _ditch_ed your boyfriend because he went out with his friends. Don’t you think that was a little bit harsh?”

“This idea isn’t working. We need to ditch it and come up with a better solution.”

“This is the fifth time that my car has broken down in the past year. I think I am going to ditch it and get another one.”

“I can’t believe that you _ditch_ed your boyfriend because he went out with his friends. Don’t you think that was a little bit harsh?”
