Where can I find texts for teaching Aussie slang?

Unread postby fenderbender » 22 Jan 2007, 17:53

Hey teachers,

maybe I'm wrong in this forum because I'm a student and not a teacher. But I have to prepare a presentation and "act" a teacher. You should know I am from Germany and my mother tongue is unfortunately German and not English. I'm sure you've already noticed that in my writings.
Thererfore I need your help.
The topic of the presentation should be "Australian Slang". So, I'm searching for a text, e.g a short story, containing a lot of Aussi-slang. The best would be a conversation.
The Problem is, I don't know how to google for that because I dont know all the words. I can just search for "australian slang" but the answeres are not that good.

Please apolgize for my poor English. I hope you'll understand.

Thank you
Best regards

Dear Fenderbender,

You're absolutely right, this site is usually reserved for teachers. As you are about to teach your fellow students, I'll answer your question here.

You could take a look at the following websites:

Good luck,
