Todd: Anili, have you always been an English teacher?

Anili: No, actually, I started out as a French teacher. That was my first job.

Todd: Wow! So tell me about your first job!

Anili: Um, my first job. I was working in Central West Queensland in Australia so it was a remote place.

Todd: Sure

For example, the nearest supermarket was about 100 kilometers away from me.

That's amazing.

And, so of course the students lived, some of the students lived a long way away from the schools, so they had their lessons by teleconference, actually, school of the air.

Wow, so when you had a teleconference for example, how many students would be on
the air this time.

I guess around eight, in two different locations. And I would be in the third location

Wow, that's amazing!


Yeah! And how often would you be teaching like this?

Well, the students were aged between 9 and 12 years old. They had two French lessons a week by teleconference.

Wow, and how long was each lesson?

45 minutes

Great. That's really interesting.
