To finish off our week, last Friday, our students came together to learn Australian Slang and taste some classic Aussie food!

After discussing some slang and having lots of laughs, the Australian food was brought out, which is what the students were most excited for.

ANZAC biscuits and lamingtons were fan favorites, whilst as usual, vegemite was the most disliked.

The students also mentioned that they loved the Tim Tams, but had already tried them, so they weren’t as impressive as the other food.
