  2. exploring potential barriers to intercultural understanding, language for example, and discussing possible ways to address or reduce barriers, such as Government agencies using translation services including Auslan and closed captioning
  3. brainstorming a list of questions students might ask a student in another country, and then identifying whether any of the questions may be uncomfortable for the person asking or responding
  4. using a current global issue to investigate a range of positive and negative cultural stereotypes and generalisations and identifying how they can be challenged
