During the flight take some time to learn more about your destination.

Australia has quite a small population, just 25 million, but the country is huge* (about only 3 people per square kilometer).
The people are mainly of European descent, but there are also aborigines and a lot of south-east Asian immigrants. People live in towns on the coast, not so much inland, because it is so hot. They live a lot of their lives outdoors*, and enjoy sports, swimming, and having barbecues.
This country exports wine and wool* – it has more than 60 million sheep*!

*huge = enormous

*outdoors = outside

*wool : de la laine
*a sheep (two sheep) : un mouton
