ESL Conversation Dialogues Scripts 21-30 contains dialogues featuring Australian English expressions, with a number of common expressions thrown in to challenge the student. While intermediate level and above is recommended, these dialogues can also be used to challenge beginners into improving their reading and pronunciation skills. The 10 dialogues in volume 3 feature over 200 Aussie English expressions which can give students planning to go to Australia, or those who have recently arrived, a quick crash course on common Aussie Lingo.
This volume also features a bonus glossary with a brief explanation of what the Australian English words, phrases and idioms mean. Normally a glossary is not included as most native English speakers from Australia would know the meanings of the expressions used in the dialogues in the series, and would be able to explain them to students, but in an effort to help people to understand Australian English, even those native English speaking tutors and teachers who are not Australian would be able to quickly understand these dialogues and be able to teach them to others, with help from the glossary.
These dialogues have been tested in private tuition lessons hundreds of times and have received great feedback from students new to Australia who are struggling to understand Australians. It is recommended that tutors add to the enjoyment of the lesson by using a strong Australian accent when reading their part of the dialogue.
This series of dialogues and conversations has been released to fulfil a demand in the ESL industry for more mature style conversations for use in private tuition as well as pair or group work in the adult classroom.
These have been reformatted for use on an ebook device, so users can practice reading the dialogues out loud and discuss the language used with their tutor or with each other.
These eBooks contain just dialogues. It is up to the tutor to create their own lessons around these dialogues. For ESL tutors, the ideas are endless. As a tutor I've always found dialogues to be useful in vocabulary acquisition, pronunciation practice, confidence building, and more besides. Students regularly comment on how useful the dialogues are and always request more, which is why there are more sets of dialogues due out soon.
I wish you all the best in teaching Australian English.
