One of my friends asks:
Q: Could you helpÂ me know where I can buy an English conversationÂ CD with Australian or New Zealand accent? In my countryÂ mostÂ CDs come withÂ British and American accents. I am interested in learning English with any different accent, so I can improve my listening.
A: Yes, it can be hard to find something good with Australian English, especially outside of Australia.Â I recommend the series ‘Understanding Everyday Australian’. It is a good series that I have used with my classes before. There are three books with CDs.
I tried to find these books and CDs on Amazon, but theyÂ are not there. These links are through fishpond, an Australian online bookstore. They ship to most countries in the world and are cheaper than Amazon anyway (especially with the Australian dollar being low at the moment), so I’d recommend buying them on fishpond. Remember the prices are in Australian dollars – not US dollars.
If you don’t want the book, only CDs, go here:

Question: The world has many large countries that use English as the national language, yet most students only learn American or British English.
Do you only learn American English? or only British English? or Australian? Why?>
