New Phone Boxes – level 1

22-09-2016 15:00

Red phone boxes are typical in Britain. They are a big tourist attraction. However, people do not use them anymore. They have mobile phones. There are fewer and fewer phone boxes.

One company wants to change this. The company turns the boxes into small offices. They have Wi-Fi, plug sockets, a phone, a printer, a scanner and free coffee and tea.

The first work station opens this month. It opens in London. More work stations are coming soon.

Difficult words: company (a business), work station (an area where you can work).

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