B2 – Living Off-the-Grid

In this video-based ESL lesson, we’ll learn about living off-the-grid. We’ll discuss the basics and challenges of this lifestyle, and acquire new vocabulary related to the topic. We’ll watch a video that shows what it’s like to live in New Zealand’s oldest national park, Fiordland. Additionally, we’ll have a conversation about outdoor activities and the interesting things people do when they’re off-the-grid.
