Enter the world of anatomy!

Neil van der Ploeg invites learners to enter the world of anatomy and we are introduced to Duncan through video.
okay we’re about to leave the real world behind and enter the world in the world of anatomy do you call that up no superior you call that down wrong inferior do you called is a neck well yeah in this case you do but my point is things are a little bit different in the world of anatomy and we need to learn the language but first meet a new person meet Duncan he’s a farmer in country New South Wales Australia he’s a good bloke Duncan eats a stack of bananas and tends to leave the peels around one day this came back to bite him he slipped on a banana peel and fell on an outstretched hand strewth he thought this is really sore he tried to carry on farming but couldn’t and turned to the computer to investigate he went onto the internet and searched what could be the problem but it didn’t seem to make any sense to Duncan It was as if they were speaking another language

Here Neil introduces us to Duncan the Aussie banana farmer who has got into a spot of trouble.
