Welcome to the weekly English expression lesson here on the Aussie English podcast!

Besides telling you that I am now obsessing over plants at home, I am going to teach you all about the English expression “where the rubber meets the road”.

In today’s episode, I will answer a question from Jasmin: what is the difference between ‘fairly’ and ‘rather’? Listen in, guys, this is “rather” an advanced English lesson for you!

We will break down the meaning of the words in the expression “where the rubber meets the road”, which leads us to know the meaning of the full expression. No, no driving like hoons involved here.

There will be example situations given so you can use the expression in your daily English conversations.

And get your ears ready and try to catch the full line said in a b-grade Aussie horror film about crocodiles called “Rogue”.
