Australia is an English-speaking country — but, like with England,
there are a lot of differences between here and there.
So many, in fact, that if you hang with the locals at a pub in the outback,
you won’t be totally off base if you sit for a second and
wonder, "Just where the hell am I, anyway?"Related: Lost in Translation:
Whose Language Is It Anyway?Because quite often, Australian English actually
needs a translation.
For example, where you might say, "Sharon’s been working very hard, so
when we gave her her birthday present she started crying.
She needs to toughen up a bit.
" — an Australian would translate that to: "Shazza’s been flat
out like a lizard drinking.
When we gave her a bidet prezzie, the sheila started crying.
She needs to drink a cuppa cement.
"Confused? Don’t worry.
We’re here to help so that when you take your big trip down under,
you’ll fit right in! Watch the video and then, just for fun, translate
your thoughts into Australian in the comments below.
Let World traveling club Travel inspire you every day.

" Australia is an English-speaking country — but, like with England, there
are a lot of differences between here and there.
But no worries, mate - we are here to help and translate.
