Australia is in the southern hemisphere and is about 20 times big as Japan. Recently, Australia has shown a remarkable growth in the tourism industry as well as the education sector. The country, which has been a popular destination for traveling and studying abroad, gives people an opportunity to see its beautiful nature and unique animals. For this month's coffee hour, we have Mr. Dale Lucy, from Sydney, Australia, to tell us all about Australia. Australia is known as "The Lucky Country", Mr. Lucy says, having many types of deserts, rainforests, tropical heat, dry heat, and snow capped mountains. One of the attractions of Australia is that there are cute, cuddly animals like the koala, but you might also see some dangerous animals making their habitat in that land. In fact, as Mr. Lucy says, that over 80% of all the world's most deadly animals can be seen in Australia.
Come and learn about the best way to travel Australia, and about the art, popular sports, and the myths and legends. Let's learn the Lingo (Language), such as "Snag" for example. Grab your mates and join Mr. Lucy to find out more about Australia! (Language: English with Japanese translation)
