This Week’s Stories
Lesson 081 大陸のど真ん中
Sapna: Yeah, but we’re finally here. It’s my first time in the Outback!
Kota: It’s like a desert! And the land is so red.
Nigel: Yes, the Outback is big and dry. And you can see traditional Aboriginal life here.
Kota: We’re very far from any big city, aren’t we?
Nigel: Yes, we’re almost in the center of Australia.
Mr. Bennett: OK, students, this is Tommy. He’ll be our guide here. He’ll teach us about Aboriginal culture.
Tommy: Welcome to the Outback!
Lesson 082 ブーメラン、知ってる?
All students: The boomerang!
Tommy: That’s right.
Briony: You know boomerangs, Kota?
Kota: Yes, we know them in Japan. I made a paper boomerang when I was little. I know that they were weapons.
Tommy: Here is a traditional wooden boomerang. Originally, Aboriginal people used them to hunt animals. For example, birds and other small animals.
Sapna: The decorations on it are gorgeous!
Tommy: Who wants to try throwing one?
Lesson 083 こうやって投げるの
Kota: Neither could I. My boomerang didn’t come back.
Nigel: We all failed. It’s impossible.
Briony: Uh, I’ll try!
Nigel: OK, here’s the boomerang.
Briony: Thanks. Ungh!
Kota: Wow, it’s coming back!
Kota: Briony, you threw it beautifully and caught it! That was amazing!
Nigel: How did you do that?
Briony: When you throw it, bend your wrist quickly. Here, I’ll show you my technique.
Lesson 084 特別な音楽
Tommy: Thank you for watching and listening.
Kota: The didgeridoos sounded cool all together.
Nigel: And the rhythm was exciting.
Tommy: I’m glad you enjoyed it. The last song was about the Earth’s creation. Those songs tell stories of Aboriginal history and culture. It’s important to carry on Aboriginal traditions.
Mr. Bennett: Their performances show us that Aboriginal music is special.
You: What a beautiful flower!
