Cultural Exchange

The table layout.

Each year the ALTs have an hour long cultural exchange with the students. The 2009 cultural exchange lesson was organized by Owen as follows: 12 ALTs were present; 6 had a table, and 6 didn't. About 28 students were present, each had worksheet, and students from the same school formed pair.

Table Role Activity
Todd Information West Edmonton mall, RCMP, Rocky mts, Hockey, Niagara Falls, CN tower
David Information ?
Amanda Information Holidays, food, sports, comics, schools, daily life in Seattle
Owen Music The Bothy Band, Irish instruments
Neil Music Grunge music
Jeremy Music Word grab


No table Activity
Jon Catch and drop game
Douglas Coin tricks
Abby Beer Pong
Paul Egg race
Michael Song: This old man
James Map Quiz

Interaction with the students begins with the ALT briefly introducing him/herself (name, age, country). The students then have to find the ALTs name on the worksheet. The ALT then presents each student with a purikura picture of yourself which the student will stick onto their worksheet. Then the students draw a line from your picture to your country, (you can mark the spot in your country if you wish).

ALTs with a table have one of the following two roles to play:

  • (I) Information people choose 6 interesting things/places/people about their country and prepare pictures and props appropriate to each. The student pair plays rock-paper-scissors (janken) with each other and the winner will throw a dice. The ALT will then describe the thing/place/person that corresponds with the dice number to both students.
  • (M) Music people choose a traditional song or a song they feel represents their country well. They play this song to the student pair at their desk. Laptops generally are not loud enough on their own (things become loud during this time), so separate speakers are good. Music people also explain about the song.

ALTs without a table, stand between two tables and have the following role:

  • Teach and play a fun activity with each pair for about 4 minutes. This can be any activity or game from your home country (best) or another. For inspiration, speak to your sempais.
