The Aussie accent only complicated to understand because Aussies have such poor diction. They typically slur their words. But well spoken Aussies should not be any harder to understand than well spoken Yanks or well spoken Englishmen.Tora wrote:I like very much american slang words, I get to know many new ones through the movies and songs, modern american classics, love the accent.
At our english classes we used to watch different travelling programes and I understood that british accent sounds very natural for us who learn eglish, american accent is really lovely, the "r" sound drives me mad but assie accent is really comlicated to understand!!

YOur book is wrong. You will hear both ways spoken everywhere. Most of the difference is in the overall accent, particularly the "r"s "a"s, and some minor spelling differences.Xkalibur wrote:
