Australian Slang No. 1

For those of you who don’t know some of the Australian slang words and abbreviations I’ve used in previous posts I thought I’d start a series of Aussie slang posts.

arvo = afternoon
tech = technician
bbq = barbecue, called a cook out in America I think I wonder what it’s called elsewhere
aussie = Australian
tea = evening meal
guys = men and women
chooks = chickens

Not all Aussies say g’day and ow ya goin mate 🙂 although I do tend to use mate a bit in my speech.
