Few are the dobbers, bludgers and two-pot screamers - the average Aussie (o-zee) is welcoming, hospitable and full of a sense of humour. Though you might just need this book to understand the jokes. *for every social situation, here’s the language you're going to hear *travellers can avoid embarrassing moments and awkward misunderstandings with clear vocabulary lists *household names, politics, sports - the book is full of the melee of Aussie interests *understand a little of the original cultures through the introductory chapters to Aboriginal and Torres Strait languages
