Websites and Blogs



  • All Down Under - cool site with all things traditionally Aussie. Look in the 'Uniquely Australian' section to find resources on events, slang, food, and style. Quizzes and history also available.



  • English Oz lessons on Jason Renshaw’s (@englishraven) blog 


  • Brisbanism – another good site…I’m assuming there’s a Melbournism and Sydneyism…not sure about Canberraism and Perthism (@elkysmith)



  • Many Stories - One Australia - Harmony Day e-book with stories by Navitas English AMEP Distance Learning students (migrants and refugees).


  • Australia Network - a great site for learning about Australia as well as learning English. You'll find a ten-part series on life in Australia but there are plenty of other things for students to do here. This could also be filed under culture and lifestyle!

Hi - do you think this might be a worthwhile addition to the page? http://www.ras.unimelb.edu.au/Refugees_Australian_Stories/
This came via 2 Brisbane teachers - Mike Smith and Karen Macnamara

OMG so much you could do here. Cultural aspect a given, but also jigsaw reading, paragraph matching, narrative tenses, writing transfer...Yay! Can you put it up Kristin? And let us know if you or your Brissie teacher friends develop any worksheets for it :)

Sure, will do, Sophia - when am at at the office on my bigger computer on Monday. It's a great site, isn't it :-)
