In the eastern parts of Germany the symbol that tells you when to cross the road is called an Ampelmann.
He is very beloved!
Here are some we saw in Leipzig.
There are now even some Ampelmädchen in some of the cities. Here are some we saw in Dresden.
We have arrived in the UK, and already I love the way I can see how people are aware of some other languages that are spoken.
We popped into McDonald’s for some familiar food yesterday… The kids love to use the screens to order their own meals. Look what we saw!
Have you ever seen this before?
We had a look at the French screen:

Are there any words you can work out?
Can you find out what the other languages are?

What’s different from the money we use in Australia? Is anything the same?
What do you think is interesting?
Most countries have their own “currency” (the word for the type of money they use).
If you travel outside of Australia you need to get some of the money for each country. You swap some Australian money for whichever currency you need.
Lots of countries in Europe now use “the Euro” instead of all having different types of money – this makes it much easier when you go traveling!
What currencies can you see in the picture?
Can you find out which countries they are used in?
