Beach at an Office – level 2

22-08-2018 15:00

The staff at a company in Tokyo changed its office into a beach. People brought two tonnes of sand, speakers and a 3D projector. They did all of this to recreate a tropical beach in the reception area.

The company wants to make its employees and visitors think that life can be a beach at work. One employee finds the sound of the waves relaxing. She also said that it helps her work. Some people even feel like they’re already on holiday.

Difficult words: staff (people who work somewhere), employee (person who works somewhere), life can be a beach (life can be very nice).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
