AE 268 – How To Form Aussie Slang Words Ending With ‘O’
Welcome to this episode of Aussie English.
Today, I want to talk to you about slang terms in English that end with the letter ‘O’.
So there are many many slang terms in Australian English.
And with the letter ‘O’.
I don’t know why we use the letter ‘O’.
It just sounds good.
But there is a kind of pattern that you’re going to see repeated again and again and again.
This video’s going to be more about how we do that, and how we can make these words, and what to listen for.
The following video is going to go over a list of maybe 30 or so of these words.
So, we make these words by keeping the first syllable of a word and then just adding an ‘O’ to the end of it.
So, ‘Afternoon’ becomes ‘Arvo’.
We just keep that ‘Arv-‘ of at the start and put an ‘O’ on the end.
And that’s a ‘V’ sound.
What about ‘Aggressive’?
How do you think that one goes?
We’ve just kept ‘Agg(r)’ and we’ve put an ‘O’ on the end.
What about ‘Garbage collector’, ‘A garbage collector’ or ‘A garbage man’?
Someone who picks up garbage.
What do you think the first part of that word is going to be?
So, it becomes ‘Garbo’.
My dad works as a ‘Garbo’.
‘Garbos’ woke me up this morning ‘Garbo’, or ‘Garbos’.
We make it plural with the ‘S’.
What about ‘Documentary’?
What do you think ‘Documentary’ becomes?
And we’ll do one more for this video ‘Service station’.
‘A service station’ like a petrol station where you go and get petrol for your car.
What do you think ‘A service station’ becomes?
So that’s it guys.
Any time you hear these words that sound like slang words one way to think about it could be:
What’s the context?
How was the word used?
And then what could the first part of that word represent?
‘Agro’ = ‘Aggressive’.
‘Arvo’ = ‘Afternoon’.
‘Doco’ = ‘Documentary’.
‘Garbo’ = ‘Garbage man’.
See you in the next video guys.

AE 434 – Interview: She Kicked Us Out & Stole Our Money!
G’day, guys. Welcome to this episode of Aussie English. Today, I have a special episode for you where I sat down and I chatted to my girlfriend Quel, and we had a bit of a chat about a recent… how can I best describe it? A recent drama, a recent event, that we went through where we had recently moved into the Pakistani embassy, as you guys may or may not know from the previous episode Canberra Renting Nightmare, and we actually got chucked out.
So, anyway, you’ll find about what the hell happened with that story in today’s episode. So, sit back, relax, and enjoy this interview episode with me and Quel. Let’s go!
We should talk about what it was like trying to find somewhere to live in Canberra and that process, and see if we can give anyone some advice on house hunting. Don’t trust old ladies… I’m joking. Cuidado as vovozinhas! Cuidado gente! Meu deus! (Watch out for old ladies. Watch out, guys. My god!)
So, alright, so what happened? We came to Canberra and we were thinking initially we would try and find a house for ourselves. It’s like a two or three bedroom house. We would rent the whole thing and pay for the bond, pay the rent, kit it out. Like, we were crazy. Like, how… We could never afford to do that? Well, we could have, but it would’ve everything we had. It’s like… So, we were hunting around for a while, and I guess, there were loads of places, but the competition was just ridiculous. There was 20, 30, 40 applicants every single time we went anywhere to look. Yep. It was funny, because at the beginning, I think you’ve got fed up within a few days. Yep. And, I was like, okay, we’ll be fine, like just let’s keep looking. And then, five days later, I was like, I can’t keep doing this. Just please let’s… I think the most frustrating part was that you would go to these house inspections, you would check the house out, and you would fall in love with the house and think, oh my gosh! This is perfect. I can see myself living here with you. We could totally, you know… Oh there’s a balcony! We could have dinner on that! And then you would submit your application and within two days you would get the, “Sorry it’s been unsuccessful!”, and you’re like, “Fuck! Again?” Like, we went through probably like six of those, and then, we just decided, right, we were like, you know what… And it was funny, we both did it independently on this day, I think. I sent you a message being like, “Should we just want to sharehouse? Like screw this let’s just find a house where there’s already people. We don’t have to pay for a bond.” And I was like, “I’ve already found one.”. That’s it. You’d already been looking for ads online to suggest we go and check out. I just couldn’t do this, like, it’s really tiring, and when you don’t have your own space, your clothes are all over the place, like, you don’t really have a routine, ’cause you’re always moving, and it’s not your house so you have to, like, you know, be aware of and considering to towards all of them. Like, I don’t know. You just can’t completely relax. It’s always like, “Oh, am I moving tomorrow?”. But that’s more, that was more, when we were staying with our friends, where we weren’t paying rent and it wasn’t really our place at all, so you couldn’t just relax. You kind of had to be respectful of their space and time. Yeah, no, yeah, totally. And we didn’t want to, you know, take advantage, like, “Oh, yeah, I’m not paying! Let’s stay for another week!”. You know, like, I wanted to find a place. We had some very kind friends that we were very very… We were very fortunate to know. Yeah, and we got to hang out with the dogs, and, I guess the… We were there for three weeks, housesitting, taking care of their dogs, which was fair enough. We’re at least doing them a favour too. And they’re pretty well-off so it wasn’t like it was going to cost them money. Yep.
But then, so we we applied to some of these share house places. And so what happened, Quel? I’ll let you talk so I have a breather. So, what happened that day? You submitted two replies, I guess, to these people.
So, we had two options. One was this massive house and the other one was a bit smaller, but the second one, the guy didn’t have time on the same day to see us or something like that. He was away I think. ‘Cause we were always checking out a house, the inspection, and you had applied to those two places before. And I got replies from them. And then after it, one of them was like, “Just come round in an hour or something”.
Yeah, and the other guy was like, “Oh you know like next week or something.”, and we were like, “Oh?”. And we had to be out by like… Well, people were back the next day that we’re living in the house we were housesitting.
So, we decided to give it a go and we went to see the mansion. Yeah, the Pakistani embassy in Canberra, the old Pakistani embassy. They got booted out for reasons unknown. Everything’s so shady. Yeah. I don’t know. So, what happened? We got there. We drove through this place and it was like this suburb full of mansions and embassies, and we were like, “How are we… Are we in the right place?”. We can’t pay for that. Like, that’s probably a trap. And then, we drove up the driveway and the lady… you called and she sounded really rude, right?
Yes. So, I’m… How can I say that? I’m really sensitive. So, I do pay attention to the way people talk to me and like the vibe that I get from them. So, the moment I called her, she was a bit rough. Abrupt, short.
Yeah, she was a bit weird. It was like, “Okay, I can’t… you know, I don’t know this person so I’m not judging, and maybe she’s had a bad day.” Yeah maybe she had a bad day. And then we got to see her she was really full on, like she was a bit… I don’t know. You know, one those people… She was kind of half funny and lighthearted, but serious at the same time.
I didn’t… I couldn’t say, “Yes she’s kidding or like she’s serious”. It was a bit like, “What are you talking about?”. Because it was kind of like all business, but then the odd joke. And you’d be like, “I don’t know how to gauge this person.”. And something that I… yeah, like if I can give one advice always… One piece of advice*. Yeah, always trust your instincts.
I had this feeling… it was a really strong feeling, like, we shouldn’t be here, because she was saying horrible things about old housemates. People who’d lived there previously. Yeah, and I was like, “That’s not really nice.”, but we were laughing, and sometimes you do say things like, “Oh, this person, you know, like…”. Well maybe they had been a nightmare. We didn’t meet them, but yeah.
Yeah, but it was really weird that she was complaining about everyone, and I was like, “Okay, anyway, like, maybe they were horrible and she’s just a poor little old lady, that…”. That’s the thing too, I think she got us in that trap of being an old lady, and we’re like, “Oh yeah, vovozinha, which is “old lady” in… “little old lady” in Portuguese. We were like, “Oh, she’s probably right.”. She was not all right, guys. She was not alright. She was really nasty.
So, what happened? We said yes that day, right? We said yes, and then we moved on… two days after that.
Yeah, and we paid 1800 dollars, straight up, for the month. Yes, because… We texted her. We said, “Can we have four weeks? We’ll try it, see how we go.”. We gave her $1,800, $450 a week, for a room that was alright. It was a pretty big room, lots of space, and then a walk-through robes. It wasn’t that bad, honestly like… Walk-through robes, wardrobes, and then a nice big bathroom.
Yep. It was nice to have you know bathroom, and, like, I personally don’t like sharing bathrooms and, you know, things. So, I was really happy with that, and the fact that she was going to cook for us was a big thing. Yeah, that was another thing included in the bills. She was going to cook for us.
Yeah, and another, you know, another way to save money. We don’t have to go, you know, go out and buy food every day. She would provide it. So, it was, “Yeah, let’s definitely stay here.”.
The funny thing was, like, the food was… it was all right, but it was pretty… it wasn’t junk food, but it was very… I don’t think it was healthy. It just depended, I guess, on what she cooked, but a lot of was…
I think the food was really good. The problem for me was I never… I didn’t know what to expect. Yeah. Like, on Fridays, for example, she would… “Oh, yeah, we’re having pizza!”, and, like, “Okay, like, you know, I’m trying to be healthy, like, at least say, and, like, just, you know, say something beforehand so then we can, alright, we don’t really want pizza. So, we going to plan something else.”. Yeah, but some days you would just come and like “Oh, we’ll have fish and chips”. I was like, “Oh, we had pasta, yesterday.” So, it’s like, I don’t know, just very…
Anyway, so, yeah, we moved in, we were doing that, it was okay, but the funny thing… I guess, “the penny dropped” we say in English, when we… when you suddenly realise what what’s happened, “the penny dropped”. We had dinner with her and, I guess, I was… I say “Jesus” a lot and I say “God” a lot. Yeah, I do the same. And it’s not because I’m trying to be offensive to religious people, nor trying to swear, it’s just… it’s kind of something that’s just said in English. I think I got it from you, actually. Like, we… when we’re shocked or surprised, we’ll say just, “Oh, Jesus!”, or we’ll say, “Oh my God!”, you know, like, you just say those… It’s kind of like a verbal tick, like an expression that’s used. So, I was saying those unwittingly, unknowingly, at dinner, and the next day, what happened? So, you got in the car.
I was… she would give me a lift to the bus station in the mornings. So, she was like really… I don’t know. She was really careful with her words. She was like, “Oh yeah, you know, like this is a Christian house and I don’t like swearing. So, if you guys can be more…” And, I was like, “I’m pretty sure Pete wasn’t swearing. So…”.
Yeah, I think I was making an active effort like “shit” or “fuck” or anything like that whilst talking with her. Yeah, and I normally don’t say… don’t swear, like, unless I’m with friends or something.
Or you hear them doing it. And that, I think, was the thing that confused me most, ’cause when you told me that, I was like, “I specifically remember her saying “shit” at the dinner table, and maybe even “fuck”, and dropping that.”, and that’s why I was so confused when you were like, “Yeah, she doesn’t like swearing.”.

And we were, like, just confused. Like, what does she mean by ‘swearing’? Like we didn’t do that. So, then I went to work and she came back home, I don’t know, and she went to talk to you.
Yep. She sat me down and she went through the same spiel, and I was like, “Oh, here we go”, ’cause she told Quel. And I was like expecting it first, right. I was thinking, “Alright, she’s just Christian. She doesn’t like it.”. I didn’t think she was going to be absolutely bat-shit crazy. I did not expect for her to be bat-shit crazy. So, she sat me down and she’s like, “You know, this is a Christian household. I don’t like swearing”, and this is where I was thinking like, “I don’t remember swearing.”. Yeah. And then she said, “You can’t say the words ‘Jesus’ or ‘God’ in this house, because I believe in the power of prayer and it interrupts or interferes with my prayers, and the Holy Spirit gets confused”. Like, honestly if the Holy Spirit gets confused, that… you should rethink that, like…
Yeah, it’s a bit presumptive to think that God and the Holy Spirit and Jesus are going to get confused and not answer your prayers , ’cause two people in the house are using the words. But I think then the thing that freaked me out and really made me think, “Oh, this chick is nuts. This lady’s crazy!”, was when she was telling me about how she believed in the power of prayer to raise the dead. So, to bring people who have died back to life. “Not she wants to brag!”. And she said she had done it twice. She’d prayed twice and people had come back to life.
That’s really… That’s really crazy.
But I guess to put this in perspective, guys, and I don’t know how many listeners will be of the same faith, and I don’t mean to offend anyone who is of the same faith, you know, it’s probably just this old lady, but she was a Pentecostal Christian, and introduced herself that day, at least after we’d moved in, so too little too late. Yeah. After we’d paid all this money and settled in. She introduced herself as a “fundamentalist Pentecostal Christian”. Yeah, the combo. And it was weird because most people don’t refer to themselves as a fundamentalist anything, right. You know, that’d be like introducing yourself, as “Hi, I’m a cult leader.”.
Yeah, like, what? It was a bit strange. I don’t know. We don’t have any problems with religious people. Not at all. Like, my family’s Catholic. Like, my best friend was really for many years. The problem is she was just getting worse and worse and worse.
Well, that was the thing that really shat me, really annoyed me, was the fact that it wasn’t that she was Christian at all, I don’t care about that, but she kept pushing it on us. Yeah. She kept trying to sneakily get you to come to church. She kept trying to be like, “Did you want to come and do this, and then afterwards we can go to church?”. Yeah, she was like, “Oh, I’ve noticed you don’t have wear the clothes.”. I was like, “Yeah, like, I haven’t got paid so I’m waiting for my money to come through, and then I can go. Hopefully, winter will hold back a little bit.” She was like, “We go on the weekend and we can go to church or something…”.
And I was like, “Ehhhh…!”. There was a lot of that too, right, because she was saying, “Oh, this is a Christian house”. And then, later we find out that there’s only one other Christian living there. And so, she’s kind of just forcing her faith on everyone else.
And, like, there was a guy living there who had a boyfriend. So, he was gay, he was a homosexual, and she seemed to be at least, obviously, knew and tolerant. Yes, because I would talk about it all the time. But she won’t or wouldn’t allow him to have his boyfriend come to the house and visit.
So, stuff like that where it’s kind of like, “Oh, it’s a share house and you live here and you can do whatever you want. Oh, but you can’t if it’s against my faith, even though I’m not going to know or be here because I live upstairs in a different room.”.
I think for me the last straw was when the Brazilian couple went there. So, we became friends. Like, they needed a place to stay. It was like, “Yeah, you know, I’m living at his house and there’s so many rooms. You guys can come and talk to the lady. She seems to be nice. Just come.”. And they did, but I don’t know what happened, and she… they were supposed to stay for like a month or something, for three weeks, and after five or, you know, seven days. She accepted their money. Yeah, she accepted the money, and then she was like, “You know what, you guys have to leave. I have this other house, like, in the middle of nowhere that you can stay (at) if you want.”. Like, why are you doing that?
And that’s the reason we ended up leaving. It wasn’t because of her religion. You know, we tolerated her doing her thing. It was more the way that she treated the people living there, and she treated it like we were dolls on a shelf that she could just rearrange. “Recycle”. And… she kept referring to people as like, “Recycling them”, anytime she wanted to get people to leave the house, because she didn’t like them, because of some problem, or because she wanted them to move into a different room, because she thought, “I could get a couple to move into the room this other person’s in, and then up the rent and charge them more money. And then, I’ll be able to make more money”. Because that was the problem, I guess, ultimately for us was that she’s paying for the entire house, and then subletting to all of us, and she’s trying to make as much money as she can. So, she wouldn’t just get you into a room and let you stay there, at least, for some of the other people whilst living there. She would get into a room and you would sign up, you would pay your rent or whatever, and then afterwards, if things change with other people in the house. She would just move you. She would try and move you around, and switch you, and move rooms, and you’d… Yeah, it was very bizarre. Not really respectful.
And so, we had two people leave, and… because, I think, they were sick of it. Yeah. And just the way that she was very busy body. She was very yeah like, you know, I’m going to tell you what to do, where to go, how to move, and I think also she was very set on helping people, you know, in quotation marks. Not really helping them, but helping them in a way that makes her feel better. Yeah. So, for instance, she was saying apparently to some of the other housemates, “We need to find a real job, because he doesn’t have a real job”. And I was like, “She doesn’t know anything about me. How do you know that I’m not making billions of dollars from Aussie English. I could be a billionaire. You don’t know anything. You don’t know who I am!”. I just happen to like this house, you know? I’m not a billionaire.
Yeah, she was really, honestly, one of those people that they try… they do the wrong thing, they can be really nasty to you, but then, “Oh, you know, I had the best intentions, and like…”. Yeah. I was saying to Quel, I was like, “I think she is a really evil person’s idea of a good person.”. So, someone who is really horrible at heart, like, I think she’s… She’s good because she wants to be good, not because she’s genuinely good. She wants people to think she’s good. Yeah. So, it felt a lot more about, “I want people to feel like or think that I’m doing the right thing by other people, but then when it comes down to it, I’m doing everything for me and other people’s needs and wants don’t matter.”.
And so what happened with us? In fact, first, the Brazilian couple, she decided to kick them out, because one of them didn’t have a job yet, and they’d just moved to Canberra. But that girl has a job and they, you know, they… if they went there, they probably had money to pay for it. So… They offered to pay the rent. They offered to pay for everything. But she decided because he didn’t have a job yet, she wanted them out.
And for me, the worst was she kicked them out, and then, I think the next day she felt bad about it. I don’t know. And she was like, “Oh, you can have this fridge if you want. You can have this mattress.”. And then, the girl would get excited, like, “Oh, yeah, sure! I’m moving, like, I don’t have anything. I can definitely take it.”, and she was like, “$300. $500.”. Like, if you say, “You can have it if you want.”. You assume that you don’t have to pay for it. She was like “You can have it if you want.”, “Oh yeah, I’d love it.”, “Oh, it’s this much money.”. Yeah, so if you want to pay that’s what I forgot to say.
I think, too, the thing that really irritated me was that the fridge she was going to sell them was one she’d given us in our room and it didn’t work. Yep. And that felt really dodgy.
And it just… we are so nice, because… that… having this fridge in the room was one of the things, “Yeah! That’s awesome.”. And then, you got there. It wasn’t working, and you didn’t say anything. We were like, “Oh whatever.”. You know, we didn’t even care, because… yeah, it was really intense. It was a very very intense situation, but the worst thing, and the thing I guess I was most annoyed about, was that she was trying to get us to pay the next month’s rent two weeks early , because obviously, she wants to be in control and have money ahead of time. Yep. And we decided when she asked for that… So, that was two weeks. We decided to tell her, “Well, look, we think we’re going to move, ’cause we don’t really feel like this is where we want to live. So, we’ll stay here for the month. We’d given you the $1,800 for the month so after a month, we’ll move out.”, and she raged. Because… she got… she was furious.

Yeah, she was really angry. And honestly, it really irritated me, ’cause I was being extremely polite to her. Like, “Hey, thank you! Thank you for everything. Like, it was nice to stay here. I’ll give you two options. We can leave in five days, and then you give the money back, or we can leave in two weeks, which is like more than enough for you to find someone else, and you don’t have pay us.”.
And I guess, the thing to mention, the thing we’d worked out whilst… when we told her that, we had found the place that we’re currently living in, and had accepted that. And so, we were okay. Yeah. The problem was that we couldn’t move in for a week. Yes. Yes. And it was also that, yeah, we had two weeks more at this other place. So, we were like, “Yeah, we’ll just stay up until the date, and fair enough, we said that we would stay here for a month. Keep the money. Keep the money, yeah. And we’ll move to the new place.”. She didn’t want us there anymore. She was just like, “You know what? You’re leaving in five days.”.
No, it was even less. She decided to back track the rent and increase it per day, the per daily rate, so that she could kick us out. So, instead of paying for a month, you pay for 18 days. Yeah, she said, “Oh well, because you guys only want to stay for a month. I’ve decided to charge you 100 dollars a day, so you have to be out after 18 days.”, which was like three days after we’d told her.
Yes, the funny thing… like, thank God we were going to Ocean Grove for the weekend. So, you know, we had a place to stay otherwise we’d be like, “Okay, so we’re not… What are we going to do, because of this crazy person’s kicking us out?”.
The funny thing was we kind of pretty much packed up the car when we drove back to Ocean Grove for Easter all the way down in Geelong in Victoria. So, we pretty much brought all of our stuff back with us, anything of value, because I was like, “I don’t trust this lady. I don’t want her to have any control over us and go into our room and take things.”. I mean everything, computers or the camera. Yeah, anything worth anything. Except the clothes. She can have those.
Yeah. So, we ended up getting kicked out after 18 days. So, she effectively owed us $720. She does. And we could have stayed, we could have fought it, but obviously it was so uncomfortable at that point that we just didn’t want to bother. Yeah, like… And our friends had said, “Just come and stay with us.”.
Yeah, at the beginning, I was like, “You know, like, I’m not giving in. I want my money back and everything”, but then we realised, it’s just not worth it, it’s just money, you know. Like, I don’t want to be around this person. She would be completely nasty to us, and I just want to deal with that.
And, we hadn’t signed anything too. That was the part that really irritated me, was that she said, “Don’t you remember me telling you that if you were going to only stay for a month…” And it was like, you didn’t say that. You’re saying that now because you’re annoyed that we want to move out, because, you know, a few other people have moved out at the same time, you’re not making enough money to pay for the rent without going into your own savings. Absolutely.
And so, yeah, but I guess one lesson to you guys, if you guys end up having issues with landlords, you can go to what’s called the Fair… I think it’d be Fair Rental or Fair Housing Work… no, not work, Ombudsman. So, you’d be able to go to other Ombudsman in whatever state you’re in. And if someone’s doing something dodgy to you, don’t just take it, ring up and ask for advice. Yeah. ‘Cause I found out afterwards too, after doing some research, that actually we could have stayed because the documents that we had signed said that she had received the money for a month, $1,800 for a month. There was nothing else in it saying that if we decided to leave after a month that she could change the rules. Yeah, absolutely. So, we could have stayed if we wanted to, but the trouble was as soon as we moved out, we would have no due course to complain or to go back, ’cause we had willingly and purposely moved out.
And maybe… we were a bit naive as well. Like… We rushed into it. Yeah, we were like, “Oh, yeah, it looks really nice. let’s do it.”. So, if you guys can just ask as many questions as you can. Just… and make sure everything’s really well explained.
And that’s the trouble, though, because I feel like… you… those sorts of questions are so hard. Like, if I’d gone back, I would have said,” Are you religious? Are there any sorts of…?”. But even then, 99% of the religious people I know are normal. And you don’t have any problem with religious people. Like, that’s not something that would… So, it’s difficult. You can’t just be like, “Are you a fruit loop?”. Yeah. “Are you crazy? Can you just let us know ahead of time?”. “Do you speak in tongues?”, “Are you nuts?”. Yeah. “Have you ever brought someone back from the dead?”, “Just to make sure”. Yeah, that’s it. “Without bragging, can you tell me?”. Yeah, it’s really hard. You can’t think… You know, you can’t really, “Okay, this prison is extremely weird so assume that it’s a horrible person”, maybe not. Maybe they’re really funny and nice. I don’t know, just make sure you sign… you read everything you sign, and don’t… yeah, don’t be naive.
Yeah, that’s it. So, that was the experience in this previous house, guys. And, I guess, it was funny because Quel and I were watching a, I guess, a Walking with Pete kind of vlog/video that I had made this day after we had accepted moving into this house, and my… what I say on there, you’ll see when it goes up on YouTube eventually, I’m very positive about my thoughts about this place. And I’m like, “You know, this old lady, she seems a bit weird, but…”. You even said that she was lovely. Yeah, that’s it. “Oh, but she’s probably lovely, and we’re going to move in, and it’s going to be good, and it’s crazy, because it’s this old mansion, the Pakistani embassy.”.
Little did I know. Quel and I were both watching this video and Quel’s like, “Don’t do it! Don’t do it! She’s going to kill you! She’s a witch!”.
Yeah, so. Oh, it was funny. But where are we now, Quel, and how has it been, you know, three days, two days in? We found another place. Yeah. Yeah, seems alright so far. Been here for like three days, four days. Yeah, something like that. Yeah, it’s a bit hard for me,’cause I have… now have to take two buses to work, but honestly, like, just coming back home and being… Peace of mind is a bit better. It’s fine. Like, we have a dog and everyone seems alright. Like, the girl is lovely, the guy who lives here is alright. These people are both our age and really friendly, especially, Elena, the girl who we’re renting from.
So, I thought that was a good idea, because we would have someone our age who we. could be friends with, and chill out with, and have stuff in common with. So, it seems to be working out. Knock on wood. You know. Maybe. Just in case. Maybe she’ll come to us tomorrow and tell us that she’s, you know, a fundamentalist Buddhist or something crazy. “I’ve changed the rules!”. But, it seems to be. going alright.
Yeah, I’m really enjoying it, and it’s a nice area as well, like, it’s a. nice area as well. Like, the apartment’s a bit small. It’s definitely smaller, and we have a share bathroom. Yeah, so… But, it’s not that bad to be honest. It’s definitely cheaper. We’re saving, like, 100 bucks a week now. So, 400 bucks a month, which is worth it, I guess, to put into savings, and put towards other things, whether it’s our own food, or, get to chill out. Yeah, I like it here. Let’s see what happens. Exactly.
Well, we should probably finish up there, I guess. We’ve been talking for almost 50 minutes. But, I thought it would be good to have you on the podcast again, and I guess, give the listeners more of a… an experience listening to us talking in a conversation. So, I hope you guys enjoy this episode. I hope you guys got a lot out of it. Lot’s of vocab in there.
Yeah, hope I didn’t say anything wrong. Yeah, that’s it, hopefully, you didn’t get too offended by our views on this old lady and the occasional swear word in there. I’m trying to swear a little more often in these podcasts. Not because I don’t swear normally, but because I swear normally, and I have been trying to keep keep it off the podcasts as much as possible, but I think I’ve realised that it’s not… I want exposure to real English and I want show you how I actually speak, especially, in informal friendly conversations and environments. So, don’t be offended if you hear the word, you know, shit, fuck, cunt. That’ll happen from time to time. Menino! É doido! (Boy! You’re crazy!”)
But, I guess, as a disclaimer that if you’re ever in doubt with regards to swear words in English… Say it! NO! Don’t say it. Don’t say it. If you’re ever in doubt, don’t say it. Joking! And feel free to ask me, guys. If you ever have a situation arise where you’re like, “Well, I heard this and I wasn’t sure if it was okay, or I felt like I want to say this, but I don’t know if it’s okay.”, feel free to ask me.
But, yeah. That’s it. Thanks for hanging out, guys, and we will try to do more like this in the future. Bye! See you, guys!
Alright, guys, so that was the interview. I hope you enjoyed it. I hope you though that it was an interesting story. I hope you got a lot out of it. And I would love to know what you think of it, guys.
So, make sure that you comment on Facebook or on the website and let me know. Was this lady crazy, or maybe she was normal and we just deserved to be turfed out? Thanks, guys, and I’ll chat to you in the next one. See ya!

AE 515: 13 x Hand Expression + English Test
G’day, guys! What’s going on? I am Pete, the host of Aussie English and today I want to teach you a whole bunch of expressions to do with the hand. Let’s go!
Alright, so, number one, guys: is to live hand-to-mouth. To live hand-to-mouth. This means to live with the bare minimum of food of money of whatever resource it may be and to have none left over afterwards, to have none spare. For example: While studying at university I really lived hand-to-mouth. I’m still living hand-to-mouth even with this new promotion.
Number two: to be caught red-handed right? The idea there being you have blood on your hands because you have been caught in the act of doing something wrong or committing a crime. So, for example, the examiner caught the student cheating red-handed on the exam. I caught my son red-handed taking a cookie out of the cookie jar.
Number three: Second hand. Second hand. If you get something second hand, you’re getting it and it’s not new. It’s not brand new, it’s second hand, someone else has owned that before you so, for example, I’m going to buy a second-hand car. Did you get that jumper second hand from the op shop?
Number four: to give someone a hand, to give someone a hand, this means to assist someone with something they’re doing. Could you give me a hand with this heavy couch? I can’t really lift it on my own. I’m gonna give James a hand with his car on the weekend. We’re gonna repair it.
Number five: to be good with your hands. To be good with your hands. That one tends to be pretty obvious, but it’s usually used to mean that you are skilful with your hands when making something or when repairing something. Dave works as a plumber and has always been good with his hands. If you’re good with your hands, can you help me fix my broken camera?
Number six: at hand. To be at hand. I guess that’s you can reach that thing if it’s at hand, right? So, it is to be close by or to be readily accessible, you can get to it. So, for example, I’ll ring up the police and see if they have an officer at hand to investigate this crime. Do you have your mobile phone at hand?
Number seven: to wash your hands of something. To wash your hands of something. This means that you refuse to have anything more to do with something and it can be someone as well. After our fight, I washed my hands of Peter and I want nothing more to do with him. She washed her hands of cigarettes years ago, hasn’t touched a smoke since.
Number eight: to have your hands tied. To have your hands tied. If you have your hands tied, it is that you are unable to act freely and you have to follow the rules or abide by the law. The cop pulled me over and wanted to let me go, but his hands were tired and he had to give me the fine. The judge says her hands are tied and the law requires a harsh sentence.
Number nine: to know something like the back of your hand. If you know something like the back of your hand or more specifically if you know a place like the back of your hand, it is that you know that thing incredibly well, right? You would imagine you know the back of your hand pretty, well better than anyone else. I’ve lived in Melbourne my whole life and I know the place like the back of my hand. She knows this neighbourhood like the back of her hand.
Number ten: hands down! Hands down. This means easily and decisively, right? So, will usually use this when talking about the most extreme something, the best thing, the worst thing, right? For example: this restaurant is hands down the worst restaurant I’ve ever eaten at. The Matrix is hands-down the best film we’ve ever seen.
Number eleven: to take matters into your own hands. To take matters into your own hands. This means to deal with a problem yourself because the person who was meant to be dealing with it was unable to do so. After the police gave up the investigation, we decided to take matters into our own hands. I might have to take matters into my own hands. If you don’t deal with your misbehaving son.
Number 12: on one hand… on the other hand… So, we use on one hand or on the one hand to introduce a statement that we’re then going to compare to an opposite statement usually or a contrasting statement on the other hand. For example:
on one hand, I want to go to the party tonight, but on the other hand I have to study. On one hand, she wants to go to the gym and get fit, on the other hand, she’s too busy with work.
The very last one, guys, the very last one, number thirteen is: first-hand, and you can also hear this as second-hand and third-hand, fourth-hand etc. So, when we use first hand this usually means directly it’s happened to you directly. So, you’ll hear something first hand, you will learn something first hand, you will see something first hand and that means that you personally did that thing. If it’s second hand, it’s that you did so through someone else. If someone tells you a rumour about someone else, you’ve heard that rumour second hand or you’ve heard that information second hand through someone else and not the direct source, ok? So, examples: when the dog growled at the girl, she learned first-hand not to pull its tail. I heard second hand that Bill’s going to divorce his wife. So, there you go guys. There you go!
Those are 13 expressions that you can use that are related to the body part the hand. They’re very common, they’re very useful!

Learn Australian English in this expression episode of The Aussie English Podcast where I teach you to use the expression NOT WORTH A ZACK.
AE 370 – Expression: Not Worth A Zack
Man. Let’s just get this started. How is it going, guys? I… I have just got home and I have had way too much coffee, but I thought you know what it is time to do this week’s podcast episode. So, I just got on Facebook Live. I put up all the podcast… freaking hell! I’ve been saying podcasts instead of postcards for the last hour.
So, anyway. Ok. This is what this is an episode that’s going to be full of bloopers. I have that feeling already. I have that feeling already. So, I got back, my parents just dropped me off. My folks dropped me off. (I) spent the weekend down at their place… the weekend, I guess, the week*. It’s only Saturday now. But, I have just gotten back to Melbourne. So, I’m back in my house.
I got five postcards from you amazing listeners. So, thank you so much to all of you guys. I did a Facebook Live lesson and I put them on the wall. So, they are now up behind me. Next time on live videos hopefully you can spot the postcards that you sent me. Thank you so much guys.
Send your postcards to: PO Box 597 Ocean Grove, 3226, Victoria, Australia
I have a few more announcements for you guys. I have a few more announcements.
First and foremost, I’m an uncle. I am an uncle. So, I became an uncle on Wednesday. My sister has had a beautiful baby girl. The baby was in breech. So, that means that it wasn’t sitting the right way around with its head facing down inside of my sister’s stomach to be born properly by a natural birth. So, instead of a natural birth my sister had to have a Caesarean, what we call a C-section, Cesarean section, where she was opened up, I guess, booked in, cut open, and they pull the baby out, and they sew back up, and she doesn’t have to go through labour.
Anyway, everything went amazingly well, and I am now the proud uncle of a beautiful baby girl named Isabel Anne Smissen. So, welcome to the world Isabel, and congratulations to my sister Annika and her partner Rory, as well as my parents. They are incredibly stoked. They are grandparents for the first time. They couldn’t stop looking at this beautiful little baby. And it kind of blew my mind quite a bit. So, it‘s ruffled my feathers a little bit, and made me a little envious and looking forward to the day in the near or far future when I have children as well. But it‘s a long road I’m sure before that happens for me, but we’ll see. We’ll see. I can imagine it can be life-changing. So, that’s the first announcement. I’m an uncle.
The second one is that I handed in, I submitted, my PhD for the final frickin’ time, guys, for the final time. Hopefully, my supervisors and the chair of my doctorate committee, the person in charge of organising my supervisors, gives me the thumbs up, gives me the green light, gives me the go ahead, on uploading the PhD to the university’s library and being done, being finished, for it to be kaput, all over, done and dusted, and I can just move on to bigger and better things. Just focus on the podcast and serve you guys as best I can at Aussie English, because this has become my passion. Despite having spent probably the last 11 or 12 years at university, yeah, 12 years at university. After all of that, it‘s led me down this road to here, to doing what I am currently doing, with Aussie English and this’s… to be honest this is where I see my future.
So, as always thank you to you guys. You are the ones who make this possible. The listeners, the ones who are in The Aussie English Classroom, those of you who have bought the course, and those of you on Patreon who have donated money kindly every month to The Aussie English Podcast. You guys are the ones who keep the wheels turning. You keep the lights on for me at home. You pay my bills. You pay my rent. You pay for the food that goes on my table. So, I can’t thank you enough. Honestly, guys, thank you so much for your support. It really… it really means the world to me. (I’m) getting a bit choked up.
Aside from that, the website has been redesigned. It’s still going through a few little changes. I‘m still tinkering away with the website. I’m trying to make it look a bit nicer. But the basic format has now changed. I’m sure a lot of you have noticed. If you haven’t noticed go over to TheAussieEnglishPodcast.com, the website, or just search Aussie English, it’ll come up in google, and get on there and have a tinker, have a little look. Let me know what you think. Have you found any bugs, any problems with it? Just give me some feedback. Do you like it? What could I improve? Because at the end of the day, ultimately, it’s there to serve you guys. It’s there to be as useful as possible for you guys learning English. So, yeah give me some feedback.
Let’s get into it though, guys. Today’s expression is “not worth as zack”, for something to “not be worth as zack”. Ok?
So, before we get into that one though, as usual, I’ve got a joke for you guys. I’ve got a joke. It’s a little bit crass, but it’s not too bad. It’s not too bad. And it’s a good joke, I think, because it kind of illustrates Australian humour. It’ll give you a sense of how we often take the mickey out of ourselves. And to take the mickey out of something or someone is to poke fun at someone or something, to make fun of. So, to make light of something, to joke about something. So, I like taking the mickey, like Mickey Mouse, mickey, I like taking the mickey out of myself, and Australians love taking the mickey out of themselves.
Ok, so the joke. Why wasn’t Jesus born in Australia? Why wasn’t Jesus born in Australia? Because nobody could find three wise men or a virgin. Do you get it, guys? No one could find three wise men or a virgin. So, it’s making fun of Australians saying that none of us are smart and that none of us are virgins. OK? So, that’s today’s joke. Why wasn’t Jesus born in Australia? Because no one could find three wise men or a virgin.
So, today’s expression, guys, is not worth as zack, for something to not be worth a zack. This one was suggested by Karina. So, good job Karina. She suggested this in The Aussie English Virtual Classroom, guys. It’s the Facebook group that you can come in and interact with everyone. There’s daily videos that people upload to practice their English. And on Mondays, I get you guys to suggest expressions and then vote on these expressions for me to do the weekend’s podcast on. So, Karina, good job, mate. To not be worth zack, not worth zack.
So, as usual, let’s go through the words in this expression.
“Not“. I’m sure all of you guys are going to know the word “not”, n-o-t. This is a particle that negates an auxiliary verb. Ok? So, a helping verb. I am not going there. I am not going there. I would not go there. I wouldn’t go there. So, it negates it. I am going. I’m not going. I would go. I wouldn’t go. So, that’s “not”.
“Worth“. for something to be worth something worth. Means the equivalent in value to the sum or item specified. Ok? So, that’s a complicated way of saying, the value of something. Ok? So, my computer is worth seven dollars. My word is worth… it’s invaluable. It’s worth a lot. Ok? So, my car’s worth ten thousand dollars. It’s the value of something.
“A zack“, “a zack”. So, this was an interesting one. I had to look this up, because, to be honest, I have never used this expression. I’ve heard it, but I’ve never used it. So, “a zack”, it turns out, is slang for a sixpence or what was called a six penny. So, this is back when we use the imperial system for money in Australia. So, some of you might know, some of you may not know, our money originally came from Britain. So, Australia’s a Britain colony. We were colonised by the British back in 1770, I believe, by Captain Cook. And as a result, the money and the measurements that were used in Australia were the imperial system. Ok? So, anyway, we had pounds, we had shillings, and we had pennies, and a sixpence, which was about five cents, was nicknamed “a zack”. I don’t know why, but it was nicknamed “a zack”. So, if something wasn’t worth a zack, it wasn’t worth very much. It wasn’t worth five cents. It wasn’t worth sixpence. It wasn’t worth a six penny in the imperial monetary system.
So, let’s define the expression, guys. So, if something isn’t worth a zack, it’s not worth zack, it’s worthless, it’s not worth any, or we could say, it’s worth bugger all. So, that’s an Australian expression, to be worth bugger all. And that just means it’s not worth anything, it’s worthless.
So, we’ve sort of gone over the origin of the expression “a zack”. It’s from the 1700s. And when I looked this up, the usage of the term “zack” for a slang term for a sixpence actually dropped off in the 1800s, guys. So, this is a really old slang term, but obviously it’s been maintained in the expression “to not be worth a zack”. And so, it’s funny how the meaning of “zack” has kind of disappeared and people have forgotten it, despite continuing to potentially use the expression “not be worth a zack“. So, yeah, not worth a zack.
Let’s go through some examples as usual, guys, of how to use the expression “to not be worth a zack”.
So, imagine you’ve got a mate who makes a promise. He gives you his word that he’s going to do something. I promise I’ll do this. I give you my word I’ll do it. But then he breaks his promise or he goes back on his word. So, you could say his word isn’t worth a zack. His promises aren’t worth a zack. They’re worthless. They’re worth bugger all.
Example number two. So, you want to buy a house, and you go somewhere and they say… you know, you go to an auction, and the auction gets up to a really ridiculous price, and the house is a real run down old house that’s not worth much at all. It looks atrocious. It looks awful. But they want a million dollars for this house. You could say, yeah, we want it, but to be honest, it‘s not worth it a zack. It‘s not worth a zack. This house is so run down and old it‘s not worth it a zack, let alone worth the million dollars that you would like for this house. It‘s not worth a zack.
The third example is, imagine you want to get some wine. Ok? I’m a fan of red wine, maybe like white wine, but you go to a bottle-o ago by some booze, to get some grog, so some alcoholic drinks, some alcoholic beverages. You want to get some wine. So, you go there and you say, I‘m after some Australian wine. I want some Penfolds. Penfolds is an amazing Australian brand of red wine. I think it tends to be just red wine, and it’s from the 1840s. They were established in the 1840s. So, the company’s something like 170 years old. But these guys are from the Barossa Valley in South Australia, and they would be Australia’s most famous brand of red wine. But say you’re after some Penfolds, and the place doesn’t have any or the vintages of Penfolds that it has, and “vintage” as in the year that that bottle of wine or that wine was bottled, say they’ve got the wrong one or they don’t have Penfolds at all, you could say, well, I don’t want any other wine but Penfolds from the Barossa Valley. Anything else isn’t worth a zack. Or maybe it’s the vintages that they have, and they’re atrocious, awful, cheap vintages that you hate. You could say, these ones aren’t worth zack. They’re not worth five cents. They’re worthless. They’re worth bugger all.
Alright, guys. Hopefully, you understand the expression “to not be worth a zack“. And I definitely challenge you guys to go out there and use this expression with some Australians, and see if they know it. You might find some Aussies who know this expression and who probably love hearing you say it, you know? It‘ll put a smile on their face. It’ll make them grin.
So, as usual guys, let’s go through a listen and repeat exercise where you guys get to practice your pronunciation. Try and say things exactly as I say them to work on your Australian pronunciation to get that Aussie accent happening. Let’s do it, guys. So, listen and repeat after me.
Listen & Repeat:
Not worth a zack.
Not worth a zack.
Not worth a zack.
Not worth a zack.
Not worth a zack.
I’m not worth a zack.
She’s not worth a zack.
He’s not worth a zack.
You’re not worth a zack.
We’re not worth a zack.
They’re not worth a zack.
It’s not worth a zack.
That’s it guys. Good job. And remember to sign up to The Aussie English Classroom if you want more in-depth exercises like this to practice your Aussie pronunciation and learn to speak Australian English just like me.
So, let’s go through an Australian fact, guys, and this ties in with “a zack”, so a sixpence or a six penny from the 1700s and 1800s. So, the Aussie fact for today is that Australia’s British colony obviously used the imperial system. So, we used pounds, shillings, and pence for our money. We used feet and inches and miles for measuring length or distances. And we used things like ounces for measuring the weight of something. Ok? So, this was like Americans use today, at least, in terms of feet, inches, miles, and ounces. They use dollars for their money, obviously. But yeah, we use this, and we used it up until the 14th of February 1966. So, my parents lived through a time where there were pounds, shillings, pence, feet, inches, miles, and ounces used as a measurement system in Australia. And in the 1960s, they switched the currency and these measurements from the imperial system to the metric system, so a decimal system, where the measurements are all relative to the number 10.
And so, the interesting thing here is that when they wanted to convert these they had to do a massive ad campaign, a massive ad campaign on TV, on the radio, to inform everyone that on the 14th of February 1966 the money was going to change over, that everything was going to change over. And so, for a period of time, and I was talking to my mum about this earlier this week, you could pay for things with pounds, shillings, and pence as well as dollars and cents. So, both currencies were being used at the same time in Australia for a period whilst this conversion was taking place. Anyway, there’s a really interesting jingle. So, the song from the ad, “a jingle” we call it. That catchy tune that are quite often really short, you know, 30 seconds. It’s used in this ad. I’m going to play it after this so that you can have a quick listen to the start of this jingle, and I‘ll also link the ad so that you can go and check it out. Anyway, that’s today’s fact. The currency changed over on the 14th of February 1966 from pounds, shillings, and pence to dollars and cents.
In come the dollars, in come the cents, to replace the pounds and the shillings and the pence. Be prepared folks when the coins begin to mix on the 14th of Feburary 1966.
Who are you?
I’m Dollar Bill, and I’ve come to tell everyone that decimal currency will be here from the 14th of February 1966.
What is decimal currency?
Decimal currency is simply a money system worked out in multiples of 10. The base unit is a dollar made up of 100 cents.
Anyway, guys, a few little announcements. Make sure you sign up for The Aussie English Classroom, guys, if you want all the bonus content for today’s episode. So, I’m redoing the website at the moment. It might look a little rough, but I’m working on it. And the new classroom, the reason that I’m redesigning the website is so that you can now do these all online. You can consume the material there. You get bonus exercises. You get vocab lists for every episode with all the tricky vocab defined as well as some writing exercises. You get the listening comprehension exercise. You get the phrasal verb substitution exercise to speak out loud and practice using phrases verbs in place of their synonyms, so different kinds of verbs. This is a great exercise to practice your pronunciation as well as expand your vocab and you’re speaking out loud. So, I think it’s a really good way of hitting all of these goals at once. Ok? After that we have an Aussie slang exercise where you learn Aussie slang and you can write it out in sentences. So, it’s a writing exercise as well. There’s a pronunciation exercise after that to practice a certain aspect of Aussie pronunciation. So, this exercise is specifically for things like a consonant sound or a vowel sound, something tricky that we can hone in on that we can focus on and really nail one week at a time, we change and up each week. After that is the connected speech, rhythm, or intonation exercise where we focus on an aspect of how Aussies speak whether it’s connected speech, how they connect the words, the rhythm that they speak with, or the intonation that they use at the ends of sentences. So, you’ll notice that I went the ends of sentences. My voice went up. And then the very last one is a little grammar exercise, and it’s a listen and repeat exercise as well, or it’s a written exercise.
Anyway, that’s a little view of all the different exercises that I build into each of these expression episodes, guys. There’re seven exercises that you can go through. You can use them as writing exercises. You can use them as listen and repeat MP3 audio exercises to practice speaking as well, or instead, if you don’t like writing. But the whole reason I’ve designed it this way is to help you learn Australian English just like a native.
Anyway, The Aussie English Classroom‘s being read done so that you can do this all on your phone. You can do it all online on your computer if you choose. And now each class is going to be like a mini course where you get points for completing certain parts. Where you get badges. So, you get little completion awards. You can interact with others. You can comment on things. You can message them. You can make friends on there, and you can chat to me on there as well.
Anyway guys, this’s been a really long episode. I hope you enjoy it. As always, if you want to give me some feedback, you can reach me on Facebook on The Aussie English Facebook page, you can send me a message. Make sure you jump on The Aussie English Classroom and give it a look as well. I know it’s going to help you upgrade your Australian English. And you can try it for one month for a dollar. Ok? So, you’ve got nothing to lose, guys. Give it a go. And with that, I hope you guys have an amazing week and I chat to you soon. See you guys.
