A Saudi family bought our house when we decided to move. The family was walking up the driveway to inspect it before they decided to purchase, while I was walking out. I said "Hello" and the father said in an obvious arab accent, "G'day mate". His wife said hello and his 2 kids were eager to get inside to check the place out. That's what it should be about. These people made the effort in my country, and it was appreciated. Just as I would have made the effort in theirs. It is also about education. These people were obviously educated in the English language well before they arrived here, but the difference is that the father adopted the slang and customs of this country. He tried them on for size, and I guess he felt comfortable.

This was some years ago, and the kids were so young that I bet they have perfect Aussie twang accents by now.
