Listening intermediate B1 activity: Tiny homes

The building of ‘tiny homes’ is becoming more and more popular in places such as USA, and the UK. Some people even buy themselves an old bus and reconvert it into the most incredible home you could possibly imagine. Can you imagine getting out of bed and driving to work without so much as putting your foot out of the door? Sounds incredible, doesn’t it? Well, with the recession going on and on, we may have to start thinking about a similar solution because, I really don’t know what buying a property will be like in some countries but in mine, getting on the ‘property ladder’ is becoming almost impossible. Anyway, here’s a listening activity about a beautiful holiday spot in Quebec whose owner  has set up some tiny homes for holidaymakers. Wow! I wish I could fly over there for a break! It looks SO lovely and relaxing. Don’t you agree?
