New to Oz Family

Hi everyone, I'm Helen.
I'm from Taiwan. I was a working holiday maker and now engaged with my Australian boyfriend. I will become a member of an Oz family soon. As a new comer, I would like to learn everything about this country ASAP.

I'm glad to know this site & hope to make some friends here.

Cheers!

I think an old proverb from a Chinese master Helen could be
Learning is never finished in ones life and do not hurry so much as you do not grasp the meaning of something.
When you listen to Australians speak, you might think they are aliens from outer space for much english gets distorted with what we call slang expressions, something all languages may have to some extent and occasionally Aussies may even throw in words from another language for fun, "Au revoir" for instance is goodbye in French.
Aussies also have what could be called very flat vowell prounciation and definitely different to European pronounciation and so because there are people in Australia with ancestory connections to about two hundred countries, our english has somewhat evolved and it will not always sound the same.
Have a look @ Australian Slang and many more sites if you google Australian Slang.
Australia's Culture Portal is very informative and plenty more sites if you google Australian Culture, such as australian culture - Google Search
