1 Our typical way of life? Well, we're an outdoor culture, a beach culture, you know. We spend a lot of time at the beach, surfing, swimming, eating, partying - we even have our Christmas dinner on the beach, you know! Ifs the weather, you see, always lots of sunshine. And as for free time, we're just crazy about sport - cricket, rugby, tennis. And we're good at sport, too! We've got great cricket and rugby teams. We love to beat the poor old poms. Poms, thafs our name for the English, you see. As far as food goes, well, we still eat lots of boring English food, but we've got more cosmopolitan food now from all the immigrant populations - Italian food, Greek
food, Vietnamese food. Holidays? Well, I guess most of us spend our holidays on the coast here - ifs quite expensive to go abroad, you know. Everywhere's just so far away!
2 Well, ifs a big, big country, so ifs kind of hard to say whafs typical. Like the weather - we've got all kinds of different climates. Our way of life, well, I guess ifs fast, so the food is fast, too, lots of hamburgers and hot dogs. What else? Er, I guess we watch a lot of TV in our free time - there are hundreds of channels on twenty-four hours a day. Er, we go to the movies a lot, too. Sporfs really big, of course. Our basketball, baseball and football stars can earn millions of dollars. Most of us go on holiday in our own country - ifs so big and there are so many spectacular places to visit. You should come and visit us!
3 Ifs difficult to say what is typical, as we've become such a multi-cultural society. Our weather hasn't changed though - still grey a lot of the time - and people still spend a lot of time talking about it! In terms of food, our traditional roast beef or fish and chips are not as popular as they used to be. People eat a lot more 'exotic' food these days: Italian food, Indian food, that kind of thing. Free time? If you go to a park any weekend, you'll see lots of people jogging, walking or roller-blading. There are a lot of fitness freaks! We like watching sport, too, especially football. And the whole country got really excited when we won the rugby World Cup in 2003. A lot of us go abroad for our holidays every year. The Mediterranean is the most popular destination, probably because their weather's so good. There you are - I've mentioned the weather again!
