Every week I find piles of great videos. Some are interesting, some are strange, others are just fun. Every week I’ll post my weekly video recommendation here, for your enjoyment. Although not specifically English study videos, all of them can be useful to you in your English studies. Don’t understand something you see or hear? Don’t sweat it- it takes years of study to be able to understand everything a native speaker says. I’ve been studying Japanese since 2007 and I can only understand about 20% of the dialogue in Japanese movies and dramas. So pat yourself on the back if you can understand even 10% after only a few years of study. I recommend you watch each video 3 times- the 1st time just to get the general idea of the video, the 2nd time try to get more detail out of the dialogue, the 3rd time to really bring it all together. Good luck!
This week’s video is about a gentleman who lives on a boat in a harbor in California. The average home is so expensive in that area that he felt he could never afford to live there, but by living on a boat he can! Very unique lifestyle.
Thanks, Ed! Reminds me very much of similar colourful houseboats dotting the harbour in Vancouver, Canada. And I gather it’s quite a tradition in some of the canal cities of Europe.
Are you considering one for Ohtsu harbour?
