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.
While watching this video, imagine what it would be like to live in a country like North Korea.
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...
After watching this video, what is your impression of Taiwan?
