I'm originally from Hampshire in England but now live in Melbourne Australia. I'm still learning new words, mostly Aussie slang, the language here in Aus I'm finding is somewhere between English, American and then Australian words too, sometimes I get strange looks at work when I ask for something as simple as a rubber, I just can't remember to say eraser after living in the UK for 19 years. There is also the word thong for flip flops which I find funny, but I've managed to get my boyfriend to refer to potato chips as crisps, since they use chips for fries too, but someone at work feels the need to constantly correct me on every word even though they know what I am referring too.
I've also been asked if I had braces because my teeth are straight, it's always followed by you have nice teeth for a British person. Chocolate also tastes different here then it does back home and I haven't found any bourbon biscuits in the year and a half I have lived here.
Has anyone else found it takes a while to get used to another country? I thought for me that I would have already grasped the Aussie language a lot quicker than I am, being that it is part of the commonwealth and all.
