Hi, I have problem in understanding the code, can somebody help me?

import java.applet.Applet;
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import java.util.*;

public class example3 extends Applet implements ItemListener
{
    Locale l;
    TextArea ta;
 
     

    public Insets getInsets ()
    {
        return new Insets (5, 5, 5, 5);
    }
   
    public void init ()
    {
         
        setLayout (new BorderLayout ());
        ta = new TextArea ();
        add ("North", ta);
        Panel p = new Panel ();
        p.add (new Label ("Language: "));        

        // Choice is the AWT equivalent of a JComboBox

        Choice languages = new Choice ();
        languages.addItem ("English");
        languages.addItem ("French");
        languages.addItem ("German");
        languages.addItem ("Italian");
        p.add (languages);
       
        languages.addItemListener (this);
 
        p.setBackground (Color.green);

        // Add languages label and choice list panel to bottom of applet object's border area.

        add ("South", p);

        l = new Locale ("en", "US");
 
        populate ();

        // Set default focus to the ComboBox

        languages.requestFocus ();
        setBackground (Color.green.darker ());
    }

     public void itemStateChanged (ItemEvent e)
    {
        if (e.getStateChange () == ItemEvent.SELECTED)
        {
            // Obtain languages item (English, French, German).

            String language = (String) e.getItem ();

           //TODO
           // a) compare variable language with the 4 hardcoded strings used
            //   in creating the comboBox
           // b) create the locale object passing in 2 arguments, language and Country
            //   these must match the suffixes in the ResourceBundle, "ex"
            //c) see the sample code given out during lecture
           
            populate ();
        }
    }

     

    private void populate ()
    {
         //TODO
        // a) get the resourceBundle for the particular locale
        // b) create a new StringBuffer
        // c) append the Key "Hello" & the corresponding term
        // d) append the key "Goodbye" & the correponding term
        // e) convert the StringBuffer to a string. Put the string into
        // f) TextArea
    }
}
