  1. comparing Japanese ways of showing respect and being polite with how this is done in their own language(s), for example, by using titles such as Sensei, bowing, and accepting objects with both hands
  2. comparing aspects of Australian and Japanese children’s lifestyles, such as ways of playing games じゃんけん、eating food (using chopsticks and formulaic language) or addressing family members and friends
  3. experimenting with using Japanese in spontaneous interactions, for example, いたい、 すごい、 ぺこぺこ、がんばれ,、noticing any changes in the use of voice or body language and communicating how this feels
