Whether you are from Australia or New Zealand or just want to include a cultural lesson in your curriculum, there are 36 AU/NZ worksheets on this page that can help you plan your lesson. For students outside Australia, this would be an interesting but challenging lesson. Since most ESL textbooks are based on American or British English, many students will have never heard Australian slang. The worksheet is structured as a guessing game and a possible answer key has been posted under the comments section of the website. If you do not want too spend a lot of time on an activity such as this, choose just a few words that you feel students are most likely to appreciate and remember. Another example of a worksheet from this section has more than twenty pages of material about Australia for elementary and intermediate students. You might feel that not all the exercises are appropriate for your students or lesson but you can pick and choose activities to supplement your own plan. Take a look at the other worksheets posted here before deciding which one you like the best.
