If before you came to Australia you thought that your English was great, but now that you’re here you can’t understand the local ‘lingo’, then this is the post for you!
Australians are famous throughout the English speaking world for butchering the ‘Queen’s English‘, and whilst this can be very amusing for tourists who speak English as a first language, it can be downright confusing and difficult for Chinese students.
If you’re curious about what an ‘bevvy’ is, or why your Australian friends are calling bags of wine ‘goon’ or wearing ‘thongs’ on their feet, then this video below will explain a lot!
Watch and enjoy 🙂
Please comment below, or on our Facebook page, on any Australian slang that has either confused or amused you during your time here and have a ‘ripper’ of an ‘arvo’!!

If you’re ever unsure of what a word, or phrase, means, the best thing to do is always ASK!!
Australians are a friendly bunch, and they are generally always happy to explain our slang, or to teach you a phrase or two.
