Do you speak the Australian slang?

While in Australia we speak English well, pronunciation of words, vocabulary and phrases are not the same as in Britain or the United States. Here are some tips and words to know about a real Australian (or almost ...) and master the aussie slang!
Pronunciation
It is often said that the Australian accent is nasal. The ends of words are often eaten. If you are fluent in English, you will understand people in big cities fairly quickly, but things may get tough with Australians living in the bottom of the outback! In a general way :

• At the end of the words r and g are not pronounced (forever becomes foreva and talking becomes talkin)
