Re: Melbourne Second Best City...........

Re: Sydney and Melbourne in top 20 best cities in the world

Re: Where did the Aussie accent come from?

That may be so but you should bear in mind that 97% of S.Africans don't speak english as a first language. Perhaps you can explain to me why so many poms just sound like they don't speak english as a...
