Utters from friends Hello, Several people commented on your first article and this is a nice way to keep In touch with many of my friends In p,C. Time has been moving rapidly for me, It has been three months now • and I only have three weeks left of the «rst term I've taught here. After that I will be transfered to a school near Sydneywhere school opens again the first of February - during the six weeks holidays I plan to do some traveling and also teach swimming lessons (sounds familiar) at the beach at Woll- onzong, a city 70 miles south of Sydney. Plans in the near future Include a gathering of American teachers near here for an old fashioned Thanksgiving feast this weekend. I trust we will find many reasons to give thanks - even If they are at home. I've been listing the numerous vocabulary words thatl've had to learn for speaking the same language as America, It surely Is difficult to understand at times! ring up - call on the phone T.V. - tele radio - wireless nappies - diapers serviettes - table napkins boot - car trunk petrol - gasoline footpath - sidewalk shops - stores muck around - goof off falrdinkum - honest -really true reckon - Aussies use this like the late nlte westerns - I reckon I'll do this etc. white coffee - most coffee comes with cream holidays - vacation blccles - biscuits & cookies lollies - candy tea - evening meal smokes - cigarettes Yankee - American Pommle - English bloke - fella bird - girl grog - beer, alcohol shout - buy around for the group So you see, these words plus many phrases all lead to much confusion - they also have no qualms about calling the bathroom the toilet (which still rather embarrasses me) Our football Is gridiron while their version Is more like soccer and rugby. I've walked Into shops and not known what the cashiers are saying-later I found they say "Are you right?" Which Is shortened frbm are you alright? a Standard form of greeting is either Good day or How ya goln, mate? Most of the kids look at me when I say "Let's go," or "Come on" - they get a kick out of slang terms like "neat" or "man" or "get with It" - I find myself letting slip with something Innocent and they almost roll off their chairs laughing. -"Bloody" Is a swear word here, but I haven't as yet pinned down It's meaning.I've used It in my health lectures and the kids gasp--oh, well— Aussies also seem ,to have forgotten "please" they'll ask a favor, or order in a cafe 1 and attach "thanks" to the end - really weird! Most say "ta" also means goodby. Sweaters and knit tops are Jumpers while T shirts are skivvies. The students wear tunics as school uniforms. Our tennis shoes are sand shoes and BB shoes are gym boots. By now I'm about scared to open my mouth at times which is something new, huh? Hope all is well at home, hi to everyone.
