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: My first job! I was working in Central West Queensland in Australia so it was quite a remote place.
Anili: For example, the nearest supermarket was about 100 kilometers away from me.
Todd: That's amazing!
Anili: 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".
Todd: Wow, so when you had a teleconference for example, how many students would be on
air at the same time?
Anili: I guess around eight, in two different locations. And I would be in the third location so...
Todd: Wow, that's amazing!
Todd: Yeah! And how often would you be teaching like this?
Anili: Well, the students were aged between 9 and 12 years old. They had two French lessons a week by teleconference.
Todd: Wow, and how long was each lesson?
Anili: 45 minute lessons.
Todd: Great. That's really interesting!
Todd: Thank you.
