a step forward

I need to say that learning slang terms for a non-native speaker can represents a something in addition English plain vocabulary.

Can I say:

slang vocabulary represents for them a higher step forwards to the acquisition of the English language which they do not always need or intend to make

    I would write like:

    Slang vocabulary implies a further step towards broadening your English language knowledge, which, of course, is neither essential nor necessary.

    Pidginboy, I think your sentence changes the meaning of the one in the first post. There is a difference between "which they do not always need or intend to make" and "neither essential nor necessary".

    Unciaciapanca, what sort of "something" do you want to say?
