Beach at an office - level 1

Beach at an office - level 1

15-08-2014 07:00

This news is from Tokyo. People at a company change their office into a beach. They bring two tonnes of sand. They have speakers and a 3D projector.

The speakers make the sounds of the sea. The projector projects water on the sand. The company wants its people to feel good. One employee thinks that this is relaxing. It helps her work better. Some people think that they are on holiday.

Difficult words: company (group of people who do business together), projector (machine which projects or shows pictures on something), employee (person who works somewhere).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Do you find the office relaxing?
