It's a koala, he's heaps cute!
Koalas are a great way to help you learn English! Especially to help us speak English. Always the first word we are going to use when we see a koala is 'cute'!
To make it more Australian though, especially if you want to learn English in Australia, you might like to say 'heaps cute!' We use 'heaps' in Australia (especially South Australia) when we speak English to mean 'very' or 'a lot'. For example: I have heaps of work to do, I'm heaps hungry, she's heaps nice.
A very common expression in South Australia is 'heaps good' which means very good. You can use it on it's own or in a sentence, see our Learn English page Heaps Good
Of course it's not only koalas that are heaps cute, you can also say a baby is heaps cute, or other animals of course like kittens, kittens are heaps cute! If you are a girl you could say 'that boy is heaps cute', and vice versa. As you get older you might like to change that to 'he's heaps hot' or 'he's heaps goodlooking'
You might like to tell me I'm heaps smart!
About the koala:
We found this very cute koala in Morialta Conservation Park which is right in the suburbs of Adelaide, South Australia, heaps good! We were hoping to find a koala for our video, but we also needed it to be quite close to the path and low down in a tree so we could see it easily with the camera. There were heaps of koalas around on this day, but all were very high up in the tops of huge gum trees of course, so we didn't think we would have any luck. Then when we turned around to go home, there he was in this tree right next to the path, on the very first branch! It was perfect. Some people walking past also admired him and told us that this is a regular tree for this koala!
Well thanks heaps for reading this blog post, get out there and speak English heaps!
