Learn Australian English in this Aussie English Video Breakdown episode where we turn the Wildman episode into a listen and repeat exercise.


AE 276.3 – AEVB: Wildman Episode Listen & Repeat

All right guys, in this episode I’m in a break down a video by Wildman Adventures.

I really recommend going to see his Facebook page. Give it a like. Say g’day from Aussie English.

In this episode, we’re going to go through line by line.

I’m just going to read out exactly what he says in my accent straight after he’s said it.

I might do it a little slower.

And hopefully this will help you understand the Australian accent a little more.


Yeah, g’day folks Wildman here.

Down at the boat ramp on the edge of the Daintree River, and I’ve come across something that annoys me quite a lot.

We’ve got down here a heap of fish scraps, alright?

Some fishermen’s come along and decided he’d dump his baitfish here.

We’ve also got, and I’m not going to go too close to the water, there’s a heap of fish scraps all dumped in the water.

About 30 or 40 fish in there. And what happens now is crocodile comes along.

They come up onto the boat ramp to eat these fish. Someone reports it, poor crocodile gets removed, and quite often killed.

This sort of behaviour that needs to be taken responsibility for.

If you’re going to have people leaving their fish scraps they need to be fined and punished for it so it sends a message out that this behaviour is not to happen.

Crocodiles are getting persecuted for people’s stupid behaviour, and this is not a prime example of it.

This is what we’re talking about people. You do silly things in croc country bad things can happen.

If you be smart and they crocwise you have no dramas.

If you’re a fisherman don’t leave your bloody fish scraps on the boat ramp.

You’re a dickhead.


So, as I’m sure you guys are aware, one of the best ways to learn English, and learn any language, is by listening and trying to repeat what you hear.

So as such, let’s dive into this listen and repeat exercise, guys, where I’m going to read out each one of his sentences.

I’m going to give you time to repeat what I say.

And then I play him saying those same sentences, and then allow you to repeat what he says after that.

So, let’s practice your Australian pronunciation guys.

Let’s dive in. Let’s do it.
