FAMILY

An average Australian household was said to be consisted of a couple and their immediate children.
However, most typical family model can no longer be exact social expectation nowadays. There are
evidence of increased divorce and remarriage rate in their population which then created households
incorporated with stepfamilies. Premarital parenthood has also risen and many children are raised in
single parent households. The legalization of same-sex marriage also paved way for same-sex couples to
have children or for families to incorporate LGBT.

While the traditional family structure is no longer an ideal social standard, the family remains
fundamentally important to people throughout their life. Australians highly value individualism to their
family members to motivate them to be independent and to follow their dreams.

LANGUAGE

Australia was first inhabited by Aboriginal Tribes which is known as one of the oldest cultures in the world.
These tribesmen, also called Wodi Wodi people and custodians of South Sydney, were speakers of
Dharawal language. In year 1788, British colonizers introduced English language which later on evolved to
Australian English. It is believed that Australian English begins at the same time of first settlement in New
South Wales.

Today, Australian English is the official language of the country despite of not being officially written in
their constitution. Their accent, also known as Aussie, is very nasal and less clipped than other English
accent resulting to a much distinctive features of vocabulary. However, there are proofs suggesting that
the older version of Australian English was much simpler than it is now due to influences. Common
Australian words nowadays come from different sources and situations and they are adopted into this
language for different reasons – the immigration of English people and the acceptance of local Aborigines
language.
