Getting to Know your Aussie Isms

Getting to Know your Aussie Isms

 

Australians don’t really sweat the small stuff and they don’t do road rage. They will talk themselves down and admit their faults before anyone else gets the chance. They probably have a pair of home thongs and a pair for going out.  They are known to be very open and sports mad. They probably feel that a four burner Barbie is all your need to replace a kitchen.  If you plan to move to Australia, you should be familiar with some of their sayings or “isms”. This will help you to survive there.
