Yes, but it is more of an American English expression. Anyway, how we talk online is much different from how we talk in the classroom or boardroom, n'est-ce pas?

"...how we talk online is much different from how we talk in the classroom..."

Is it?  How do you know how the OP talks in the classroom (assuming that he's ever been in one as a teacher!).

Do you have a habit of making mountains out of molehills? I've been an ESL teacher for twenty years and I have used nonstandard English in the classroom. Students should and need to hear all kinds of English because one day they may, gasp, speak with someone who uses slang or unusual pronunciation. Learning English isn't just for passing tests. Or so I've read on this site ad nauseum. Why don't you hope off your high horse and get into a classroom there senpai.
