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

In today’s episode, I am going to teach you about the English expression “foot the bill”.

Yes, quite funny & gross when you hear it being said – you begin to imagine someone giving a chopped off foot to a restaurant waiter. That’s morbid. So let’s let that slide!

I’ll give you example situations where you can use the expression “foot the bill” and we’ll practice together saying the expression.

I’ll also answer Elham’s question: do Australians use the word ‘cranky’? Mmm, yeah, stay tuned for my answer!

And finally, make sure your ears are sharp as you try to listen to this short clip from this Australian horror-comedy movie titled 100 Bloody Acres. Clue: there are 2 people talking!
