Added 'The Friendship Graph'


TV (incl. YouTube & iView)






  • Lonely Planet Six Degrees – Melbourne, Sydney and Perth (@elkysmith). Short, funky, segmented (@trylingual)


  • Any ABC content! iView, live radio, podcasts ABC News, apps. Everything you want and then some. (@trylingual)




  • ABC Open has good short videos like this one (warning: it’s about kangaroos…) (@elkysmith)
  • You're Skitting Me by ABC3
    YOU'RE SKITTING ME is an Australian sketch comedy show for kids. The sketches are an edgy mix of zombies, cavemen, naughty girl guides, animations and parodies of Twilight and talent shows. Could be some good content for classes with young adult learners here. (@cioccas)

  • The Friendship Graph - Flight of the Conchords, Designer Lessons ESL lesson plan...
    Sometimes, finding comedy clips which appeal across cultures can be tricky, but you know it’s working when your students start laughing along. Perhaps because it deals with people who are some way out of their own cultural safety zone, the HBO series Flight of the Conchords seems well suited to classroom use...
    The following is based on an excerpt from Season 2, Episode 2 which I felt would not only test my students’ listening skills (New Zealand accents are hardly over-represented in ELT listening material) but would also provide an ideal context for some focus on tense usage (particularly the present perfect and present perfect continuous) and conversation based on the theme of friendship.
