Learning to Speak like an Aussie from Out an’ About.

What do you say if someone says “wanna come over Saturday arvo for a barbie?”
If you speak English you might not think you need a dictionary, but learn a few choice phrases and you’ll be ready for almost anything over here.
Okay, here are a few basic words worth knowing:
Owya goin = how are you?
Arvo = afternoon
Fair dinkum= true
Ripper = really great
Biccy = biscuit
Choccy biccy = chocolate biscuit
Chockers = very full
She’ll be right = everything will be alright
Understanding us should be easy as pie now. And you should be right to head out to that barbie.
Good on ya mate!
