The Language
English is Australia's official language, but Aussies use their own version, called "Strine".

It is different from other varieties of English
in vocabulary, accent, pronunciation, grammar and spelling.

So, you think you know English...? Try talking to an Aussie!
Learn some "Strine":
Can you translate it into... English?
“I’m bringing some sangers to my mates for brekkie while wearing thongs and sunnies, but I’ve been bitten by mozzies and nearly stepped on a cockie.”
It means:
“I’m bringing some
sandwiches
to my
friends
for
breakfast
while wearing
flip-flops
and
sunglasses
, but I’ve been bitten by
mosquitos
and nearly stepped on a
cockroach
.”
