The term Pom or Brit is used to describe persons of British origin and Kiwi for New Zealander; these are used in a friendly and accepted manner. Australians are friendly people and you will often hear “no worries” and “enjoy” the meaning is really meant in the use of the word and you will find yourself using it. It is important to greet and the local term “g’day mate” will be heard on occasion.
The language of ordering a coffee is complicated! Coffee has become very popular and cafes exist all over and compete to make the best. The combinations are endless! Café staff are always pleased to help and best to describe what you want and then remember the name. For example we have flat white; long black; soy flat white; strong soy flat white; skinny strong decaff latte or soy decaff latte with a twist of almond and so on! To confuse further coffee time is often referred to as “morning tea” rather than “coffee time”.
Have fun and enjoy!
