    AUSTRALIAN Culture and Language Help - II

    I'm starting a new Australian Culture Thread, as I still have many more questions I need answered in order to tell a good story.

    I will start with the last question posted on the thread. Who are some famous Australian child actresses? Ones with really good Australian accents.

    It would depend on when your fic is set. About six or seven years ago, there was a show called The Sleepover Club, which was about like, five or six Australian girls who were in primary school. But they're all grown up now, I think.

    There's this other show that's fairly recent, called Mortified! The girl is eleven, and she's pretty Australian, I think. And that's really all I can think of...I hope it helps!

    Oh, I have been watching plenty of episodes of The Sleepover Club. Sat through twenty episodes; I think it's scarred me for life.

    I feel so sorry for's on right now, and it's pretty terrifying.

    I've been trying to think of others, but there don't seem to be many little Australian kids...there's a show called Blue Water High, but they're like, fifteen, which is probably too old. There might be some little kids on Neighbours or Home and Away...

    Good luck, though...

    I'm not Australian but I'm from across the ditch so close enough. Lol.

    I would suggest watching episodes of 'Home and Away' since I know they're all on Youtube and they have a wide-range age-wise of actors. I haven't watched it in about a year but I remember there were some youngish children on there.

    Also when I was a tween I used to read an Australian magazine called 'Dolly' so you could have a look around their website. There is also another one for younger girls which I think is called 'Total Girl' or something along those lines. They might scar you further though so beware!

    Hope this helps!

    More questions still. What games did your primary school teachers used to play with class when they needed to kill some time or just needed a few moments to themselves? I remember a few very popular games were Heads-up 7-up and Simon Says.

    Are these games played in Australia, or are there some other classroom games that are very common?
