This is called “getting down with the kids”.
According to the UK newspaper, the Independent there is an elderly sociology professor in the United States who keeps a spread sheet of all the slang words his students use.
Apparently the professor does not use the phrases himself, but keeps the spread sheet so he can understand what his students are talking about when they use slang.
