The next topic in our preparation for our trip to Australia is talking about and describing people. For this topic I introduce my students to Steve Irwin, "The Crocodile Hunter". We will then go onto learn about Australian animals and how to describe animals and their habitats. Steve Irwin is someone I admired very much.
When you meet someone for the first time of course you will introduce yourself, but then sometimes you don't know what to talk about next. A good "ice-breaker", a topic you can warm up with, if you are a Japanese person meeting a foreigner, is to talk about your name. You can explain how to write the kanji for the name and what it means, and talk about how you got your name. Japanese names are different to western names, so it can be an interesting topic. Have a look at this video where I explain the names of my family members.
