(600 words) to present the key findings and evaluate their performance, reflecting on the communication
skills and strategies used in planning and conducting the interview.

How to go about it:

1. The class will explore and discuss a wide variety of possible purposes and styles of interviews,
different interviewees and topics.
2. You will choose one or more options to investigate.
3. You will watch an example of an interview.
4. You will explore the role of questions and the different structures and types you can use.
5. You will develop questions for the interviews (draft, analyse and check to come up with final list of
questions in appropriate order).
6. You will contact your interviewee and arrange a time and location for the interview.
7. You will analyse, explain and demonstrate the importance of body language when conducting an
interview.
8. You will conduct your interview in English and record it.
9. As a class, you will read two interview articles. Then you will discuss and analyse: What is an
interview? What is the purpose? What are the language features?
10. You will learn how to write a report (reflecting and evaluating).
11. You will then draft and write a final individual report about the interview. A template (outline) will
be provided. This will include:
key findings of the interview
reflection on the communication skills and strategies used in planning and conducting the
interview, such as oral communication skills (e.g. pronunciation, initiating, sustaining, and
concluding interactions, non-verbal cues, understanding of politeness conventions, active
listening strategies, and question design).

G: Making Contact
Once you have decided who you will interview and the topic of the interview, you need to make
contact to arrange a time to meet.

It is important to create a professional relationship with your interviewee, especially if you


do not know them personally. Most people communicate via email to organise meetings if
they do not see their interviewee regularly.

Every text type we write has its own conventions and this is true for email.

EXAMPLE:
Politely address the person you are emailing.
Dear __________,

Using formal language tell them why you are emailing.


Ask a time to meet if they are able to help.
As part of my English as an Additional Language course at Thebarton Senior College I am required
to conduct a small interview with a person of expertise in specific area. I would like to interview
you about _________________ because ___________________.
Please let me know if you are able to help me with this, and if so, when we can arrange a

OVERALL GRADE:
Appendix
Interactive Study 1

Introduction
The person I interviewed was Mrs Jane Williams, who is in her sixties, and is a successful Aboriginal woman
from the stolen generation. She was an English teacher. The purpose of the interview was to investigate
about the changes she has seen during her life in the areas of treatment of Aboriginal people by society and
their integration with Australian culture. Ann was knowledgeable and the topic was interesting for both of
us as we are both women from different cultural backgrounds and it was interesting to hear about the
treatment of Aboriginal people within Aboriginal society and their integration in Australian culture.

Summary of Information
(Topic sentence).
Firstly, she said that the treatment of Aboriginal people actually had not changed since she was a child in the
1950s. They still do not have very good health and also they are not treated very well. She shared that,
Many Indigenous people have diabetes, heart problems and very high birth and infant mortality rates. She
shared that Aboriginal people do get help, but do not live as long as other Australians.

However, she also stated that most aboriginal people are very kind, talented people, especially in playing
musical instruments, art and dancing. In addition she told me, Aboriginals needed to be recognised more
and supported more. Many people assume that Aboriginals get a lot, whereas Jane believes that they really
do not have very much. She told that although former Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd started Sorry Day, again
this was just a small acknowledgement of some of the tragic history that Indigenous people have suffered,
including the loss of their traditional lands and culture.

Secondly, Ann expressed issues about the integration of Aboriginal people within Australian culture and
society. She explained that all the cultures in Australia have a lot to share to with each other. All cultures
have their own music, clothes, art dancing, and many other valuable things to offer. They also have lots of
celebrations like Eid festival after Ramadan (a month that Muslims are fasting). Its the same with the
Christian religion such as Christmas and Easter which are the big celebrations for them. She said that if you
got invited to any of these celebrations it doesnt mean that you are going to be Christian or Muslim. If
people dont think about discrimination, always think positive and live in peace; as a result, you will see
Australia prosper, reported Ann.
I learned a lot of very interesting points about the problems and value of Indigenous people from this
interview with Jane.
Appendix
Evaluation of the interview process
The preparation of the interview went well. Before the interview, I prepared well by practising the questions
and checking the recording equipment (the mobile phone), which was beneficial to be properly organized. I
planned and used my questions effectively to gain valuable information. The relevant open and closed
questions were designed effectively in order to achieve specific responses from the interviewee. In some
cases, when the interviewee misunderstood the question referring to the current status of Aboriginals, and
explained something different, then I had to ask a follow up question to clarify her response. Next time, it
would be better to make these sorts of questions more specific. During the interview, I was approachable,
with positive body language and good eye contact was used to encourage her as well as to show my interest
and attention. Smiling assisted us to develop a positive rapport. We sat a comfortable distance apart and I
nodded and offered positive, open gestures, which encouraged her to respond well and in detail.

Overall, the interview was conducted successfully because the valuable answers to questions were collected;
however it included some areas in need of improvements. The interview was very beneficial and I have learnt
a lot about Aboriginal culture and people.
Appendix
Interactive Study 2
_______________

In this assessment I learned about the Iranian culture. I interviewed Jane Doe who is a bilingual student
support officer. She is from Iran and has been in Australia for ten years. She came to Australia when she was
20 years old and she knows English very well because she studied in her country. The purpose of this
interview is to find the similarities and differences between Australian and Iranian cultures. Furthermore, the
Iranian believes that Australia has its own culture of traditions, celebrations and religion. They are very
diverse as the population is very multicultural. She says that people in Australia have a very positive attitude
words migrants and refugees.

_______________________________

I learned that she believes that Australian people are not racist and they welcome migrants. She sees
similarity between cultures as they value families, respect nationalities, education and religions. Jane Doe
said that education is an important role in any culture because the educated people have a wider vision on
life and can create wealth. She said I hope that in the future my children will be educated in Australia and
also my children will share the most important cultural things like respect for adults and religion. There other
important thing I learned from the interview was that she keeps her own culture alive by celebrating
important traditions of her own culture like Ramadan and Nowruz.

_______________________________

When organising the interview I was well prepared. I planned the questions and a polite and respectful
greeting, introducing myself. I felt uncomfortable at first but I calmed down because she was nice. She spoke
informally. This made me comfortable. Also my personal and social skills building my confidence because
before I was nervous.

My body language was open. I had some eye contact and nodded my head.

My questions were open which was helpful. This worked well.

My goal and purpose of the interview was to find out about Iranian and Australian cultures. I achieve this
well.
