Australia has a very good system. We seem to cater very well with non-english speaking people. My understanding is that most people feel comfortable coming to Australia.
Have you ever had a problem with translation in Australia?
When I was a freshman at university, I had an oral English teacher who was from Australia. Maybe it's because I did not get used to English, or there were some problems in my listening, I could not ever figure out what she was talking. However, I with my classmates was amused by her funny accent. Later on, it's okay with me to understand thoroughly what she was talking and to communicate freely.
