They will travel to get to know different regions/cities and to investigate significant aspects of the culture or country. Before leaving on the trip, they will learn about the geographical features and climate of the area. They will also practice greetings so that can address people they meet using appropriate register, titles, courtesy expressions , and gestures. They will pack their backpacks with items they must take along on a virtual or local field trip.
