Learn some Aussie slang terms to help you speak ‘Orstralian in no time. I hope you have fun with these:
- Avo or avos – Avocados
- Bikkie – a biscuit or cookie
- Chewie – chewing gum
- Chokkie – chocolate
- Fairy floss – cotton candy or candy floss
- Flake – shark meat usually bought at a fish and chip shop
- Icy pole, ice block – Popsicle or lollypop
- Mystery bag – often refers to a sausage
- Sanger – a sandwich
- Tucker – food!
- Veges – vegetables
So, let’s try and put that lot into a few words….
I was starving so I spat my chewie out and had a bikkie but I was still hungry. I had some left over chokkie so wolfed that down followed by some fairy floss I got at the local show on the weekend. I didn’t want to have a sanger as I’d had one at lunch! Still hungry after that, so I got a piece of flake from the fish and chip shop, cooked up a mystery bag and some veges and threw some avo on top. Talk about great tucker! Then to finish off, I had an icy pole.
Haha we tried! It’s not easy “trying” to speak the lingo even as a native without totally confusing you with other words we could throw in.
