School of the Air in Australia

Posted by Speakeasy News > Wednesday 30 August 2017 > Ready to Use

In this A2 article your students will discover the special distance-learning schools which provide classes for children in the Australian Outback who live hundreds or even thousands of kilometres from the nearest school. We suggest going further with two downloadable short videos. For full listening-comprehension they require a B1 level, but there is plenty that can be drawn from the images and snippets of speech at A2.

Vocabulary and structures

  • school
  • technology
  • Australia
  • preterite and the two presents
  • introducing oneself
  • describing everyday life, school, hobbies and routines

These are the videos we suggest using. The video of Casie can be downloaded here.

And this is the link to download the video of Lawson.
