      In small towns and in the countryside, houses are big.

House in the COUNTRYSIDE
(Pronunciation:KÃN-tri SÁID)

      They are affordable (= accessible; not expensive).

AFFORDABLE = accessible
(Pronunciation:a-FóR-da-bôu)

      In the countryside, however, there are not many jobs. Many people move to the city to find a job.

      In the city families live in small apartments. This is a problem.

      But some architects had a great idea. They invented robotic walls.

ROBOTIC WALL
(Pronunciation:ro-BÓ-tic UÓL)

      Robotic walls are changable, so you can change their position and transform the apartment.

Position 1

Position 2

CHANGABLE = ‘transformable’
(Pronunciation:TCHÊN-dja-bôu)

      People can transform their apartment according to the situation. If they have guests, they can have two bedrooms.

GUESTS = visitors
(Pronunciation:GUÉSTS)

      If they have a dinner party, they can have a big kitchen.

DINNER PARTY
(Pronunciation:DÍ-nãr PÁR-dy)

      Now, architects want to develop a technique to scale this solution. They want to invent a technique to produce robotic wall apartments in big quantities.
