  • The official language is English, with an australian dialectical twist, but, as Thomas_Edison pointed out above, many many people have a second, unofficial language. Out of 20 million people, there are are over 1 million of Italian descent, with about 400 000 competent in Italian or a dialect, similar numbers of Greeks, Spanish next (mostly Latin America), Chinese, Vietnamese, Maltese (we have one of the largest Maltese communities in the world), ARabic and various Asian languages (inc Lao, Khmer, Indonesian, Filipino, Thai).The native ABoriginals number about 1 million, of whom several hundred thousand speak their tribal languages almost exclusively or as a first language. That makes us pretty multicultural. I myself speak 4 languages fluently (english, Italian, Indonesian and German) with some competency in half a dozen others. My husband speaks three languages (English, Italian, German) and our daughters are bilingual Italian/English. Our neighbour on the right is Chilean, on the left is Fijian Indian. Across the road are Vietnamese and more Fijian Indians. Down there road there are Somalians and Sudanese.

  • Although Australia has no official language, it is largely monolingual with English being the de facto national language. Australian English has its own distinctive accent and vocabulary. The next most common languages spoken at home are Chinese (2.1%), Italian (1.9%), and Greek (1.4%). A considerable proportion of first- and second-generation migrants are bilingual. It is believed that there were between 200 and 300 Australian Aboriginal languages at the time of first European contact. Only about 70 of these languages have survived and all but 20 of these are now endangered. An indigenous language remains the main language for about 50,000 (0.25%) people. Australia has a sign language known as Auslan, which is the main language of about 6,500 deaf people. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australian_languages
