Hong Kong

I do not expect you to understand this entire video. I just want you to get the following: Hong Kong was a British Colony that transferred to China in 1997. China has difficulty deciding how to handle Hong Kong, which is used to having a free economy and enjoying personal freedoms.

North Korea

While watching this video, imagine what it would be like to live in a country like North Korea.

Geisha

By the end of the video, be able to describe what a geisha is and how girls train to be geisha. What other things did you notice about Japan...clothing, attitudes toward superiors, buildings and traditions...
