In today's episode...

G’day, you mob!

It’s another great start of the week here on the Aussie English podcast!

In today’s episode, I am going to teach all about the English expression “as thick as thieves”.

‘Thick’, the opposite of the word ‘thin’ and ‘thieves’ as in the plural form of the noun ‘thief’.

Can you figure out what it means by these 2 keywords?

Yeah, you’ll be surprised what it means!

Remember that I will now also be answering questions from YOU guys — just go to https://aussieenglish.com.au/askpete and record your video/audio question!

In this episode, I will be answering a question from Win from Myanmar, who recently migrated to Australia. He asks what traditional Australian foods are.

Watch/listen to the examples I am going to recommend for Win to try – you’ll go hungry!

Speaking of thieves, a hotel in Spain got robbed of 45 bottles of wine. What makes this robbery so interesting is that the stolen bottles are so rare, one of them costs about half a million US dollars!

How did the thieves pull it off? You’ll laugh at how simple their modus was.

And finally, don’t forget to do the Listening Comprehension Exercise at the end.

Note that the guy actually mentioned an acronym but listen carefully how he says it!

See you all in the next episode!
