Welcome to this weekly English expression episode on the Aussie English podcast!

In today’s episode, I will teach you about the English expression “a drop in the ocean”.

Grab a cuppa because I will be breaking down the meaning of the words in the expression then give you the meaning of the whole expression.

I will also be giving out examples on how you can use this expression in your daily conversations.

Listen in for the origin of the phrase “a drop in the ocean” as well as its related expressions “a drop in a bucket” and “a drop in the sea” and know how they are used in sentences.

Likewise, I will answer a question from Liind asking about the Australian pronunciation of the word “kilometre” – do you say “kilo-metre” or “ki-lometre”?

We will be practising how to say the expression “a drop in the ocean” in a Speaking Exercise.

And finally, don’t forget to grab a pen & paper to catch the Listening Exercise at the end of this episode where I will play a short clip from a touching Aussie movie called Last Cab to Darwin.
