Since the world has opened up more than ever, it is vital that students and teachers learn about other countries and cultures. Students may choose to study abroad or, in their future professions, they may be required to travel and do business in different countries. Even if people are unable to visit other nations, it is still important and interesting to learn about other places.
Written by a Scot, this guide will give students an authentic insight into what life is like in modern Scotland. Information about its location, currency, language, literature, cuisine, music and things to see and do are just some of the topics included in this study. Real life photos break up the text and give the reader a visual treat. At the end of the study there are questions based on the text, project ideas for students to complete, a word search and recipes to make shortbread and scones.
