Australian families may be different from the family you have been used to in your home country. Australia is a modern, multicultural society and your host parents may be from any ethnic background. But they are still Australian!
In Australia, people who care for each other and live together in one house may be considered to be a family, so an Australian family may be:
• A couple with no children
• A single person
• A couple with children
• A single person with children
• An older couple whose family has grown and moved away
