Australian Curriculum asks us to set up the main concept to deepen learning languages and culture. “Change” is one of the important concepts for intercultural understandings. Students are expected to encounter the unknown by meeting with people who have a different cultural background and going to overseas countries.
This video clip would be an introduction to start learning a new unit of CHANGE.
