G’day, you mob!

I have another English expression for you to add to your growing list.

Today’s episode is about birds, so first, we’ll talk about the English expression “like a shag on a rock” — listen carefully on what I mean by SHAG here!

Like always, we will break down the words in the expression, talk about its meaning, and and give you examples of how the expression “like a shag on a rock” may be used.

Also, I’ll answer a question from @henry.khosasih“How do you use Ta?” This is a very Australian expression, so listen up to find out how you can avoid embarrassing situations when you encounter it.

Listen to a short story where The Yorke Peninsula has a very unusual form of ‘art’ performed by pied cormorants, called ‘shag art’.

And finally, for today’s Listening Comprehension Exercise, listen to a short clip from Oddball, an Australian movie.

Improve your listening skills today – listen, play, & pause this episode – and start speaking like a native English speaker!
