Content description

  1. noticing that language can be made casual or ‘softer’ by adding particular endings, such as そうですね。すみません。 ちょっと。
  2. observing how language use reflects respect and social distance, such as showing respect for authority figures, for example, しつれいします。よろしく おねがいします。, or expressing familiarity with friends by using first names rather than surnames
  3. noticing differences in interaction styles in some familiar situations in Japanese and Australian contexts, such as interactions in classrooms or shops
