    Default Are there any Aussies out there? Kiwis?

    Can any legitimate Aussie or Kiwi share a few indispensable local words with the forum? Stuff we all should know before going?

    Hola! En el Internet hay muchos diccionarios de ingles australiano. Prueba "Australian English", o "Aussie English" o "Australian Slang" o "Strine". Si encuentras algunas palabras en particular que necesitas traducir, ponlas en un mensaje en este foro y tratare de ayudarte. Saludos, Nira

    Aussie slang varies from state to state and depends on what region you are in. Slang in the city is different from that of the country.
