No, or at least not all of them. Aboriginals have developed their own language and use it still, but there might be a few Aboriginals who learned English and help explorers better understand their culture and way of living. They also have several languages as tribes have developed different words and phrases for themselves. But generally speaking they don’t speak English.
The 2006 Australian Census reported that 86 percent of Aboriginal peoples spoke English at home. Only 12 percent spoke an indigenous language. There were around 600 languages spoken in Australia before Europeans arrived and there are now about 200, and all but 20 of these are highly endangered.
