einglish vs. australian

i was talking to a kid at work the other day about how i'm from canada. he asked me if we speak australian in canada. i tried to explain that we speak english in both australia and canada but some of the words are a bit different. i thought he was getting it but then he said "they speak australian in england too."
reminded me of the time when i worked in california and an 11 year old asked me "do you speak english or canadian in canada?" i wasn't sure how to answer that one.....
