Language in Australia

02 April 2009 by Anna Staford

Travelling to Australia

English is the primary language for most Australians. It is used in schools and it is generally the older individuals who are not fluent in English. Hotel workers, retail clerks, and anyone else directly working with the public will be speaking English.

There are however over 200 Australian indigenous languages. Centuries ago there were more, but over time they have been destroyed or endangered. Only in the remote parts of Australia these languages are spoken. You will also encounter Mandarin, Cantonese, Italian and Greek due to the influx of immigrants that settled here. There is no official second language. English is the most common.
