Activity 2: Students watch a short one-minute called MOVE, which shows clips of 11 countries visited by Andrew Lees in 44 days.

What makes any country and its people special, worth appreciating?They exchange their views in the group/class discussion. Activity 4: Teacher asks students to discuss in small groups what they could learn to do in each of the countries (for example, you could learn to dance tango in Argentina or you could learn to make paella in Spain) and what they could learn from its culture, history, inhabitants (based on general knowledge of the countries and previous activity results). Students list their ideas (writing, drawing, mind mapping) on the A3 paper. Activity 5: Students watch the second film LEARN in which Andrew learns different things in each country. Students should watch the film and spot which things he learns, and then compare them with their answers from the previous activity.
