BRIEF OUTLINE:  A simple adaptation of the textbook travel scenario. Students write a dialogue, receive an Australian passport and take turns playing 'Tourist' and 'Customs officer'.



  • SummerHolidays worksheet: Print the worksheet double-sided, then cut and fold the "passport" section.
  • Optional (not included): Stamps (1 per 2 students)



  1. Introduce the idea of travel/holidays. Ask students where they want to go and where they are going to go. Hand out the dialogue worksheet.
  2. Read out/explain the travel advertisements. Ask the students to choose a destination, and help them answer the questions.
  3. Hand out the passports, help the students fill out the passports. (Passport number = Student number)
  4. Act out the role of Customs Officer and Tourist with the JTE. Rehearse with the students.
  5. Get the students to act the roles of Customs Officer and Tourist in Paris then swap. Or, allow students to walk around the classroom and interview three of their friends.



  • Exchange the Australian coat of arms with your own.
  • You can finish the activity after about 20 minutes if students only do one interview.



This activity can take a while. It's probably best if the students have already covered the textbook topics
