What is Asia Literacy?
Asia Literacy is the capacity to reflect upon and explore cultural differences in the Asian region. It is the ability to understand Asian cultures and gain knowledge about Asian people and their histories.
Why is Asia Literacy Important in Australia?
As the 21st Century advances the countries of Asia are becoming increasingly important to Australia for trade, business, employment, sources of immigration and social integration. It is therefore important that we prepare the young Australians of today for an Australian society that will grow closer to Asia over the next century.
