English in the antipodes

Next Tuesday 1st March, students from 3rd and 4th of ESO will be attending a Cultural Talk whose topic will be Australia and New Zealand. It will take place in the Red Conference Room from 10:00 to 11:00 and the speaker will be Robin Walker, teacher and collaborator in Oxford University Press. 

Remember last week I asked you to look for some information that is going to be relevant so as not to get lost during the talk. For those of you who are forgetful and lazy, here are the questions I told you to answer for Monday:

Why was Cook annoyed when he discovered New Zealand? By the way, who was this Cook? Why were the Maoris browned off when they say him arrive? Why were Cook’s sailors pissed off when he discovered Australia? Who plays the didgeridoo and who speaks strine?

  1. Very interesting talk, indeed!
    Robin said you had a good level of English because he could see it in your faces and also because some of you made him questions after the talk. I hope we can repeat this experience some time!!
    Remember that he told you a lie regarding one of the people he talked about so now it's your turn to search! I can only give you a clue and it is that it has to do with Ned Kelly.
    I look forward to hearing your answers!
