Upside-down House – level 1

08-03-2023 15:00

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 watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What inspired the Polish people to build such an unusual upside down house?
