#AusELT is a community of enthusiastic, dedicated ELT professionals based in or near to Australia and New Zealand, who work together to share industry-related resources, advice and news via social media. This list of resources was started because we felt there was little published material out there with an Antipodean focus, and we wanted to help our learners better understand and engage with local culture, lifestyle, music, film, current events etc., whilst learning English in a way that is practical, relevant and engaging. We hope that these pages will be a forum for sharing this type of Australasia-related content, bringing together our favourite resources, ideas, lessons, worksheets and links in one convenient location. Click on the RESOURCES tab above and choose a page from the drop-down list. See also the contents list below, and at the bottom of every Resources page. Resources.

Netflix and learn – six ways to teach English language skills with television

Melissa Thomson, a British Council teacher and trainer based in Bilbao, describes her top six approaches. Last year I asked my teenage learners to list the five places they were most likely to encounter English online, and the top answer was Netflix. Over 37 per cent of the world's internet users subscribe to Netflix, a streaming service for movies and television series.

Almost everyone I know is a user of media-streaming services. That includes friends, family, colleagues and my learners. I asked my learners what they watched I also asked them how much they watched, and how they watched it (such as with subtitles or dubbed). I involved my learners in the planning process by asking them what language skills they wanted to improve. They often told me that they didn’t have time for homework, but also said that they spent between a few hours each weekend to a few hours every day watching television online.
