Upside down house - level 1

09-05-2014 07:00

A special house is built in Shanghai. It is upside down. The house features a bathroom, bedrooms, a kitchen and a living area.

Everything is upside down in the house, even the furniture and the cutlery. Many people are shocked. They lose their balance.

One tourist likes the bathroom the most. There is a toilet in the bathroom. The tourist thinks that the water can fall out of the toilet.

The house is built by people from Poland. It took five months to build the house.

Difficult words: feature (has), cutlery (knives, forks and spoons that you use for eating), lose balance (they cannot move well).

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