Does Australian using American English? British English?

Australia English

As it turns out, Australia is based on British English.

However, due to its multiculturalism, there is also some American English mixed in, making it a great country for those who want to study both types of English.

For example, if you are in a hamburger shop, you would use “take out” in American English, but in Australia, you would use “take away” in British English.

On the other hand, in Australia, they often use the American word “subway” to refer to the subway.

In Australia, there is a mixture of British and American English.

Also, local people tend not to pronounce with their mouths open very much, so it may be difficult to understand if you are new to the language.
