Australia's wildlife and census

AUSTRALIA’s WILDLIFE and CENSUS at Window on America center in Dnipro.
This afternoon WOA’s Australian volunteer Mr. Eric suggested to introduce a unique Australian predator. The group was offered for big-screening a short video “Killer Crocodiles of Australia” by “Travel OZ”. The film presented the salt water crocodiles and their way of life. The fresh water crocodiles were also introduced together with croc hunters and croc farms. Even though the comprehension of the Australian English was a challenge for many the new vocabulary proved to be very useful for other spheres if life.
The next topic for discussion was an important event for the Australian and Ukrainian society - the census. A short US educational cartoon explained why censuses are important for government. We also watched and discussed videos about Ukrainian community in Australia and top Australian actors in Hollywood.
At the end of the session the group was offered a round of “Speed English” prepared by WOA’s volunteer educator O.Myrgorodska. All the participants were thrilled and were looking forward to their turn to talk to the Australian volunteer.
Participants number – 46 persons.
