Australian differences and tips:

-Crisps are chips

-Lemonade is sprite

-Cheers is similar to saying ‘thanks’ or bye’. You’ll often hear it before the word ‘mate’

-Calling Australia ‘Down Under’ is a tourist slang. No local says this.

-Instead or saying ‘no problem’, you’ll hear ‘no worries’

-Go to a currency exchange in a Mall or in a store. The exchange rate is more!

-When in a store, they’ll ask if you’re “taking a look”

-The US summer months is during Australia’s winter. Make sure to bring cold weather clothing!

-For schooling: high school is referred to as college while university is reserved for (US) colleges and universities as a whole

-Digital maps aren’t accurate. Use the street names instead of relying on ‘current location’

-Most restaurants have guests pay at the register instead of waiting at the table
