Lexis Students reporting from the streets of Brisbane

Sometimes our teachers encourage our English students to step outside of their comfort zones and put their English skills to practice by going outside and speaking to people on the street about real-life events.  This week, it was to find out what people thought about the US election.

From High Communication class teacher Blair:

Our High Communication Option class took to the streets last week to ask the people of Brisbane what they thought about the US election results.  Our survey showed 50% for Clinton and 50% for Trump, but the news sources say that 80% of Australians wouldn’t have voted for Trump.  Why the discrepancy?  Can you think of any reasons?

This made for a very interesting discussion class afterwards!
