Having a great weekend, you mob?

Here’s another fun-filled episode on the Aussie English podcast!

In today’s episode, I am going to teach you all about the English expression ‘sleight of hand’ – yeah, that phrase they use to name a magician’s hand trick!

I am also going to answer a very cool question from Gen of the Philippines — she wants to know more about the Australian song Waltzing Matilda!

Listen in to know what’s the story behind the outback song Waltzing Matilda, and know what a ‘matilda’ is.

There’s also this intriguing story about how a 60-year old woman used sleight of hand to exchange pebbles for diamond jewellery! How do you think she did that?

And finally, don’t forget to do the Listening Comprehension Exercise at the end of this episode — listen to a clip from the Australian movie The Hunter.
