The Italian language is used primarily by migrants who have moved to Australia. The language is not a mainstream subject in Queensland schools; but is a very common elective l…anguage in some of the southern states of Australia. So commonly used is the language, in fact, that according to a CIA report, it is believed the third most-spoken language within Australian homes overall, behind English and the various "Chinese languages". Of course, as elsewhere, music is fundamentally taught in Italian in Australia. Italians are also very well known for their influence in restaurants, take-aways and cafes in the southern states, as also in the shoe and clothing industries. So it is very helpful if one can speak Italian if involved in these fields.

Yes , the Italian language may be called the language of love. But the same statement may be made about the Spanish, Romanian, Portuguese and French languages. These five - a…nd others such as Galician, Catalan and many others on the European side of the Mediterranean - are called members of the Romance family of languages. The term actually refers to their development from the interaction of ancient local languages with the ancient Latin of the conquering Romans. Additionally, all of the Romance languages are spoken in countries that are known for beautiful scenery, fine food and interesting tourist activities. All three of these characteristics also work together to create romantic environments for those seeking love as well as for those who already have found it. So the play on words is accurate in terms of Italian (and the others in the linguistic family): a Romance language descended from Latin and linked with situations lending themselves to romance.
They obviously speak italian. Most Italians especially near tourist destinations, also speak English and possibly French.
Italians in small town or village who are talking to people in the same village will usually use the local dialect of Italian such a Florentine, Milanese, Roman, Neapolitan, S…icilian, etc. When Italians greet other Italians from elsewhere or if they live in a large city, they use proper Italian. If an Italian is conversing with a foreigner, he may use English or French instead of Italian.
