[Key concepts: perception, identity, communication; Key processes: discussing, evaluating, reflecting]


  • making decisions about relevant information to be included in a cultural identity profile to exchange with non-Vietnamese speakers, for example, deciding what personal details to include such as age, gender and salary, depending on contexts, purpose and relationships
  • reflecting on choices made to present self to others in particular ways or to conceal aspects of identity when interacting across cultures; and noticing differences in the way they communicate, think and behave in different contexts
  • exploring how individual ways of communicating, thinking and behaving help shape views of own cultural identity, for example, why a Vietnamese-Australian teenager who speaks English better than they do Vietnamese and understands more about Australian culture than Vietnamese culture may view themselves as more Australian than Vietnamese
  • comparing and contrasting a Vietnamese and Australian experience, such as a celebration, and considering how their own and others’ identity may shift according to the context
