If you are planning an extended stay in Australia, it would be helpful to get a feel for daily life there. This is actually surprisingly easy to do with the help of Australian news websites. Brushing up on celebrity news, what the climate of news is around the country, and also what the news is in your soon-to-be backyard will make it easier to connect to your new coworkers and friends. Here are the three types of websites that you should look for so you can begin acclimating.
Celebrity News Websites
Have you ever noticed how people in America talk about celebrities as if they were their next door neighbors? It is the same in many countries around the world. An Australian news website that focuses on celebrities will ensure that you know what people are talking about when you get over there. Here is a quick tip, Justin Bieber is actually a big name over there, too. However, you probably have not heard of Iggy Azalea, a hip-hop star in Australia. For Halloween she dressed up as Cruella de Vil.
Daily News Websites
If you are moving to Australia for work, you should make an effort to learn about the related industry news in Australia. For example, the daily business news in Australia has revealed that a change to the way that iron ore is priced will put Australia at a disadvantage if it wishes to ship to China.
Local News Websites
Once you know where you will be moving to, you should find your soon-to-be local Australian news website. Knowing what is happening in your town makes for good water-cooler talk, and so that you have a way to strike up conversations with your new workmates. Even making yourself familiar with the weather could help you to actually answer someone when they make that infuriating rhetorical remark, “So what about this weather?”
Moving to a new country, on a new continent, can take quite an adjustment period. That acclimation can be made easier with the help of several news sources which will help you understand the political and business climate, as well as the less serious of news items, such as celebrity gossip.
