Move to Australia

Move to Australia

If you are planning a move to Australia from another English-speaking country, you may not be thinking that there could be communication difficulties once you arrive.

However, the Australian brand of English is very different to what you may have heard or used elsewhere in the world and if you don't know the jargon, any move to Australia is going to be far more difficult.

Planning a move to Australia ?

Whether you are a native English speaker or whether it's your second language, you may well consider your vocabulary extensive and sufficient for more or less any occasion.

But after you move to Australia you may well feel out of the loop as there could be many words you hear being casually tossed around that you are not familiar with.

To start with, try using the Australian Macquarie Dictionary rather the more internationally renowned Oxford Dictionary. This is because the former will be a huge help in translating more country specific phrases and terminology.

One of the first things you will find after you move to Australia is that the country loves to abbreviate or shorten words. Any group of words which can be made into an acronym will be and any words which can be nicely abbreviated will also find it chopped about. For example, 'tutorial' will normally become 'tute' and 'technology' may simply become 'tech'. Some are obviously much easier to guess whilst others - even after you move to Australia and become more au fait with the system - are almost impossible to guess.

It's not just the words:

If you don't speak English at home normally and you plan on using it for the first time after you move to Australia you might find things slightly different than the textbook.

If you are a native English speaker you should have fewer difficulties after you move to Australia but you may still find you have to listen much more closely because of the accent. The Australian accent is far more distinctive than many places elsewhere and the local pronunciation may be different than what you are used to. 

Body talk:

Finally, even if you find communicating in Australian English difficult after you move to Australia looking at someone else's body language can make it much easier.

Although the telephone is convenient it can make things more challenging. By talking face to face instead you can pick up what another person is saying by reading visual clues and respond much more easily too.
