OUTLINE: Students make an internet telephone call in class to an AET's Australian friend and ask questions about Australia.





  1. Before the lesson, e-mail your friend or contact in Australia their script. (Like the example in the attachment.)
  2. Start the lesson by handing out the student scripts to the class.
  3. Ask for 7 volunteer students to take turns standing up to ask the Australian contact the questions from the script.
  4. Once you have your volunteers lined up, make the call.
  5. After each question the rest of the class listens and writes the answer they could catch on their copies of the script.
  6. After finishing the questions say goodbye to your contact as a class, and take up the answers on the board.



  • Make sure you have loud enough speakers, or are using the TV so the contact is audible.
  • It also helps to coach your contact a little before hand, to make sure they speak slowly and clearly during the lesson activity.
  • Make sure your contact is reliable, and will be available for the lesson. In any case technical difficulties could hinder the call, and back-up material should be prepared just in case!
