  1. Have a look at the clothes you are wearing and choose 2 garments, see where they are made.
  1. Now choose one of them.
       Think of the country it was made in.
       What do you know about this country?
       And, about the factory where your garment was made?
       Imagine what this factory can be like.
       Describe what you have imagined.

Have you seen in the video what you have imagined?

3.   Now think of the person who made your garment.
How old could he/she be?
How many hours does he/she work every day?
How many days a week does he/she work?
Was he/she tired when she was manufacturing it?
Had he/she eaten anything that day?
How much was he/she paid to make it?
Does he/she like his/her job?
Has he/she ever been to school regularly?
Would he/she like to be doing something different?
How does he/she feel?
