Utopia in London – level 1

13-09-2016 07:00

People hold a design exhibition in London. Thirty-seven countries share their version of a utopia.

Turkey’s utopia has a wish machine. Lebanon’s version is very realistic. It shows the street life of Beirut. Australia’s utopia has a special table. It shows plastic in the sea. Australia wants to say that this is a problem.

The New York Times calls London the new world capital for design. The boss of the design exhibition likes this. He says that the exhibition shows that all of this is true.

Difficult words: hold (organise, happen), exhibition (show), share (show to other people), utopia (an imagined place where everything is perfect).

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