The most common is LOL.If we are LOL-ing,we are laughing out loud.That is what l-o-l stands for.And it is easy to know when to use this.If a friend writes something to you that is extremely funny–or hilarious–you can reply with a"LOL."In conversation,though,it sounds weird to say the letters"L-O-L."
最常见的是哈哈大笑。如果我们在哈哈大笑，我们就是在大声笑。这就是l-o-l的意思。而且很容易知道什么时候用这个。如果一个朋友给你写了一些非常有趣或搞笑的东西，你可以在谈话中用“L O L”来回答，不过，说字母“L-O-L”听起来很奇怪
Here's another one you might see in a text message from a friend.
So,when someone nods their head up and down,that means they are in agreement.And if they shake their heads back and forth,it means they are disagreeing.
Well,sometimes it does.Sometimes shaking one's head means something completely different.
For example,I might say I could only shake my head at his arrogance.This means that I couldn't believe that he had said or done something so arrogant.In a text,email or social media post,you can simply type SMH.But just as with LOL,it doesn't sound right in spoken English.
Here is an example of how to use the full phrase"shake my head"in a conversation.
I can't believe how your friend acted at the funeral!When the preacher began speaking,she laughed out loud.It was so disrespectful.
How do you think I felt?I was standing with her!I could only shake my head and cringe inside.It was so embarrassing!
If your friend is always behaving badly,you may just have to throw your hands up.This body language expression means that you realize that you cannot do anything to make a situation better.
For example,let's say you are teaching a roomful of young children when suddenly a dog runs through the classroom!The children jump up and start laughing and chasing the dog.You can't do anything to quiet them down.So,you just throw your hands up and let them have fun.
Shrugging your shoulders is when you raise and lower them.As body language,it shows that you don't care about something.But it can also mean that you are uncertain or perhaps just bored.
For example,let's say I am babysitting a friend's child.At dinnertime,I ask the child,"So,do you want pasta or rice for dinner?"He doesn't say anything.He just shrugs his shoulders.So,I made my favorite–pasta with tomato sauce!
Rolling your eyes is another way to show you don't care.This body language says that you don't care AT ALL about what someone is saying.Eye-rolling is even more disrespectful than shoulder-shrugging.So,teachers and parents often criticize children for eye-rolls by simply saying,"Don't roll your eyes at me!"
Staying with the eyes,we come to raising eyebrows.Usually when we raise our eyebrows,our faces look as if we are surprised or shocked by something.But raising your eyebrows can also show that you disapprove of something.There is a certain amount of judgement in eyebrow-raising.
