About This Australian Life
What is life really like in Australia? How to do people think, interact, communicate, eat, work, play and relax? Join three young recent arrivals from the Asia Pacific region as they experience an 'ordinary' week in Australia. From the mundane (like buying food and doing the dishes) to the lofty (environmental concerns, moral frameworks, community ties), our guests are immersed in the real, intimate workings of Australian homes, families and workplaces and share their reactions and insights via video diaries.

This Australian Life is a new 10-part series that you can watch on TV and online. We are streaming full episodes of the program plus you can download exclusive Learning English videos and transcripts from each episode page.
