Sleeping in a Taxi – level 1

31-08-2020 15:00

Hotels in New York are expensive. People want to visit New York, but they do not have enough money. One man knows this. He offers cheap accommodation. It costs only 40 dollars a night.

You do not stay in a hotel. You stay in a taxi. There is a bed in the taxi. However, there is no bathroom. You must use a restaurant bathroom.

People like this type of accommodation. The taxi is in the city centre. It is only three stops from Times Square, and only one stop from Grand Central Station. You also have a great view of Manhattan.

Difficult words: offer (if you offer something, people can buy it from you), accommodation (a place where you can sleep), view (what you can see).

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