This is a good idea. I have said brb many times and people don't know what I mean. My Chinese friends say 88 for goodbye which confused me at first. BRB means Be Right Back, of course. DC means disconnected (a real problem in some parts of the world.) 

WC usually means water closet which means someone had to use the washroom.

Whatever you do, please do not think that 'gonna' and 'wanna' are real words. Get in the habit of chatting in PERFECT English and  you will just get better and better. Chat is wonderful if the person you are with is a native speaker (me, for instance) who uses the same words and grammar that you would see in a book, not the typical short forms. These are ok between really good friends but work against you if you talk to a stranger or someone you don't know well. But knowing the slang is helpful too. Whether you use it or not is up to you. At least IMHO (in my humble opinion)!
