Australian English is taking the world by storm! Never before have
we heard so many Australians speaking openly in their native language.
Australians can be seen chasing wild animals as the Croc Hunter,
fighting gladiators as Maximus, protecting mutants as Wolverine,
getting angry as the Hulk, fighting Greeks as Hector, becoming the
Princess of Denmark or even having a few beers with their mates
as Crocodile Dundee.
And the one thing all these Aussies have in common? They speak
So, what does Steve Irwin mean when he says, Crikey!,
Strewth! or Fair Dinkum!? Does Gday
just mean hello? Up until now there has been no way to find out
other than by spending time in Australia itself. However, with The
Aussie English CD, youll be able to understand Australians
and speak to them in their own language quicker than you can say,
You little beauty!.
Designed for people who already speak English, The Aussie English
CD immerses the user in Australian English through a series of hilarious
interactive animations that explore the four cornerstones of Australian
life: the Barbie, the Beach, the Outback and the Pub.
As well as learning by watching Bruce and his mates enjoy their
Aussie adventures (which can be subtitled in standard English),
you also get to help them decide what to say, as well as play games
designed to reinforce all things Aussie.
Theres also an interactive Aussie dictionary, over 30 tutorials
that explain core Aussie language and cultural concepts (like when
you should shout an Aussie a beer!), as well as hundreds
of phrases that let you improve your Aussie accent by comparing
it to that of a native speaker.
It also makes a great gift!
