Via Brett McS, who knows me, what can I say:
Ali Mills – Waltjim Bat Matilda
In the first minute or so, I was confused, and had to look her up in Wiki, at which point all was made clear:
Her Kriol version of “Waltzing Matilda” sung in her Gurindji-Kungarakan language (written by her great uncle Val McGuinness) has received national airplay.
(Cuz to be honest, at first I thought it was a VERY obscure reference to RC2′s retweet of this link:
Dutch is a good first foreign language to tackle, because it is simply English very badly spelled. You will have little trouble if you remember to spell words the way they sound rather than the way English spelling rules dictate that they ought to be spelled. Once you have mastered Dutch, you can go on to German, which is English spelled even worse, and the Scandinavian languages, which are English spelled really atrociously.
Who knew Australian Creole looks (to my ‘Murican eyes) like Dutch! Easy to learn, is it?)
