Australians are known for their relaxed and relaxed attitude to life, and this is true at least to a certain extent. You'll probably meet some locals who relax and take the time to enjoy life. Australians are eager to appear that they are no better (or less) than others. They value authenticity, honesty and do not like pretentious and arrogant behavior.
Australians appreciate people with humor and distance, and gladly moderate their own successes and ambitions to such an extent that they can sometimes seem uninterested in doing much with their lives. A good example is the word water, which many Australians pronounce something like “waada”; as in many other words, the consonants soften and the sound a sounds wide and long. The wide spectrum of individual backgrounds and stories, together with the legacy of the natives who have lived on the continent for more than 50,000 years, have helped to create a unique Australian national identity and a popular spirit. The main decisions are made at the highest levels of Australian organizations, and most employees are aware of this mandate and their own place in the organization.
We encourage readers to visit the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander course to learn more about Australia's indigenous cultural diversity. Australians are used to people speaking American and British English with different accents, so you shouldn't have a problem making yourself understood even if you sometimes use the word “wrong”. The only substantial social conclusion that can be drawn from the way a person speaks is usually their age (through the use of specific jargon). Remember that this is just a very basic level introduction to Australian culture and people; it cannot explain the diversity of Australian society and is in no way intended to stereotype every Australian you may meet.
In general terms, the Australian public is developing an appetite for new experiences and is actively seeking different things. Although English is the main language used in Australia, Australians have their own unique way of speaking, which includes a colorful vocabulary, an accent characterized by increasing intonation, a unique phonetic system and jargon (“Strine”), which can take a long time to get used to. Australians tend to be very modest in terms of their achievements and generally criticize themselves to avoid sounding pretentious. At first it might seem a little silly to go around being nice to strangers, but if you listen to how the Australians around you behave and how they express themselves, you'll soon have a good idea of how social protocols work.
The term is used to indicate a deliberate disapproval or violation of the Convention; the term, for example, has been used seriously in debate articles to criticize the proposal to introduce social security numbers and national identity cards, but above all it appears in joking contexts, such as in television advertising that proclaims that “it is not Australian not to eat lamb meat for dinner”. Ministers and civil servants have given speeches to celebrate Australia and the Australian people, and then Prime Minister Julia Gillard presented one of the country's most prestigious awards: the title of “Australian of the Year”. Increasingly, bicultural identity is seen as an asset to be treasured and proud of in Australian society. Many of the statistics on Australian public attitudes come from the Cultural Competence Program.
