After a string of tech-related prompts, it’s about time I gave you something offline!

house

That’s it.

Comments on: "House" (1)

  1. A couple of ideas, some obvious others hopefully less so

    Working of vocab: furniture in a house. Where is the furniture in your house?

    Home-less: Looking at homelessness in different countries, the causes. What governments/ charities do about it. What the average citizen does. Moving on comparing homelessness with refugees. Do people view refugees and homeless people differently? Why?

    The difference between house and home: Perhaps using that old Homebase (or B&Q I forget which) Ad that ends “making a house a home” and comparing what is different between the words house and home. Is home just a place or more than that? Discussion questions like: Where is your home? Is it the same as your house/apartment?

    I know NEF using houses to talk about imaginary situations and your dream house. So that’s another possible grammar focus.
