This paper explains that Australia is underpopulated as far as its size, but over two-thirds of the population resides in any one of the ten major cities on the coast, which makes Australia one of the most urbanized counties in the world. The author points out that, even though the national language in Australia is English, the accent, style of speaking, and parts of the traditional vocabulary greatly differ from American English and is slightly difficult to get a grasp of in the beginning. The paper lists many social customs: Hand shakes are a common way to greet someone, Australians are keen on answering their invitations at the first possible moment, and an invitation to a dinner, even by a friend or a peer, usually means separate checks.
