In today's episode...

Happy Sunday, you mob! How’s your weekend going?

In today’s episode, we are going to talk about the English expression “sink or swim”.

We will be talking about the origin of the phrase “sink or swim” and give you example situations where you can use them.

Also, I stand corrected regarding The Waltzing Matilda! I received this brilliant email from Karin of Germany where she told me something about “der Walzer” and “die Walz”. Apparently, they’re different.

We will also break down the meaning of the words in the expression and know the meaning of the phrase “flotsam and jetsam” – that’s a bonus for you right there!

And finally, for the Listening Comprehension exercise, listen carefully to this clip from the Australian TV show Round The Twist.
