"My funny discovery of local slang... G'Day mate!" Aussie Slang Tip by Tripack
Aussie Slang, Sydney: 4 reviews and 2 photos
It was a funny experience to discover the Australian local slang ;-)
I was learning English there and I will remember my very first day in Brisbane forever. I was waiting the local bus to my school. W hen the bus stopped, I popped up and the bus driver said me something as I understood as Good Die, mate! What a strange welcome... I hoped that the bus will keep me on the roads till my destination ;-) At school, my teacher explained me that usually Aussie says Good Day instead of the traditional Good Morning as I learned in my Cambridge English student book in Switzerland. So no worries, it was my first experience with local slang... a lot of fun in prospect.
On the photo you could guess a small zeppelin wishing you a G'DAY this time it was more easy understand because written ;-)
Below it was the Olympic flamme and not a giant Aussie barbie... in the Stadium Australia during the Games. Nowdays the fire let the place to the water as the cauldron is reconverted in a fountain...
