Learn English the Australian way! There are plenty of sites online to teach you British or American English, but what about good old Aussie English?
If you're planning to visit my beautiful country, but have only ever had language classes from a British or American tutor, you won't be ready for the huge difference you'll experience from native Australian speakers.
Let me help ya, mate!

Short and sweet (and very late)!
It seems a normal habit for me to only post a new blog once a year. Soz!
Well, I'm thinking you all might enjoy just a little snapshot of life as we Aussies know it. The thing is, me, the Mrs and our tin lids are actually living in the bowels of Siberia at the moment! That's a bit of a crazy adventure right there!
I reckon if I keep these posts short and sweet, they'll be easy for you mob to read and crapload easier for me to write!
