Mensagem:  Australians have a different accent, different vocabulary, different syntax, different pronunciation, etc. If a student will be dealing mainly with Australians, it makes little sense to study English in the USA. If an American is going to be working or living among Brazilians, are you going to recommend that he study Portuguese in Portugal? It is unclear to me why this is unclear to you. I'm unclear as to why It is typical that small nations have an adaptability and flexibility that is absent from larger ones. The type of english spoken in isolated outposts usually incorporates a openness that allows for the dominant paradigms.
