Byron Bay- Amazing Aussie food and slang! – 16 January 2024

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

Aussie Food!

Our students watched some videos about Australian slang and, then learnt some key Aussie slang phrases.

Some of the words and phrases our students learnt included:

  1. ‘Good on ya mate’ = Good job!
  2. Tinnie = Beer
  3. Arvo = Afternoon
  4. Servo = Service station
  5. Sheila = Woman
  6. Bloke = Man
  7. Avo = Avocado
  8. Ta = Thank you
  9. G’day Mate = Hello
  10. Macca’s = McDonald’s

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.
