Australian students could make a web site containing everyday images from Australia and explain them (In English if itfs an ESL class or Japanese if itfs a LOTE class) to their Japanese email partners. On the home page, under annotated links, there is a good example of this showing and explaining everyday images of Japan that would be interesting to a first time visitor to Japan.
Under annotated links there is a link to Australia without make-up an exhibition of sub cultures in Australia. Japanese students who are studying English could report on the sub-cultures that exist in Japan, with photos and commentary.
Also under annotated links there is a link to A journey to the heart a very moving picture story about a middle aged Aboriginal woman meeting her Japanese blood-relatives. There is so much that can be done with this resource. For example, email partners can look at the pictures and write a story or a dialogue. They can research the history of Aborigines and Japanese in Australia. Students can explore their own personal histories and share with their email partners.
