  1. 2. <ul><li>When meeting someone for the first time, it is usual to shake the person's right hand with your right hand. People who do not know each other generally do not kiss or hug when meeting. When you first meet someone, it is polite not to talk about personal matters. </li></ul>

It is probably considered the most important national occasion. Veterans celebrate by marching through the streets of cities in the morning and share drinks and memories in the afternoon. This day is very special to Australians and commemorative services begin at dawn. These ceremonies are held at war memorials around the country of Australia. During the day, the ceremonies always include an introduction, a hymn, a prayer, and address, laying of wreaths, recitation, a period of silence, and the National Anthem </li></ul>

  14. 15. <ul><li>Boxing Day- December 26 </li></ul><ul><li>This day is a public holiday and the majority of Australians spend it on the beach. Some see this day as a day to extend the Christmas break </li></ul>
  15. 16. <ul><li>English is the primary language used in Australia. Yet their colorful vocabulary, accent, phonetics system and slang ('Strine') can take a lot of getting used to. In 1788, there were about 250 separate Aboriginal languages spoken in Australia, plus dialects. Today, only two thirds of these languages survive and only 20 of them (eight per cent of the original 250) are still strong enough to have chance of surviving well into the next century. In addition to these there are also the languages of immigrants from Europe, the Middle East and Asia. </li></ul>
  16. 17. <ul><li>Strine: term coined in 1964 and subsequently used to describe a broad accent of Australian English. The term is a syncope, derived from a shortened phonetic rendition of the pronunciation of the word &quot;Australian&quot; in an exaggerated Broad Australian accent, drawing upon the tendency of this accent to run words together in a form of liaison. </li></ul><ul><li>Maz dryza dead dingo's donga (I am as dry as a dead dingo's donger, i.e. I'm rather thirsty) Flamin Pom bastard zazmadza cutsnake, he yodelled on the wall to wallen ran out way past the black stump (The crazy English guy is as mad as a cut snake, he just threw up on the carpet and ran off into the outback) </li></ul>
