Hi Carolgreen,

Colloquial language is ordinary spoken or written language that is informal but still considered part of the standard.

Slang is even less formal and uses words and expressions that are not considered part of the standard language. Usually slang is used by members of some limited group, such as teenagers, or members of certain ethnic groups or professions. Some slang is vulgar.
