Here at KOM Consultants we send a lot of students to Australia each year. It can be a bit of a culture shock, no snow and no Tim Hortons!!!!! And like every other country, Australia has its own slang and way of saying things. When you hear someone say ‘g’day’, ‘how ya going’ or ‘no worries mate’ don’t be alarmed they are just being friendly. Here’s a list of some of our favourite top 10 Aussie slang words or phrases:

G'Day Mate

G’DAY the universal Australian friendly greeting, as in hello
MATE buddy, friend
NO WORRIES expression of forgiveness or reassurance
BARBIE barbecue
ARVO afternoon
BEAUT, BEAUTY great, fantastic
BLOKE man, guy
CORKER something excellent
FAIR DINKUM true, genuine
RECKON you bet. Absolutely!

KOM Consultants are the application centre for over 20 overseas universities.
