Learn English in This Lesson About Living Off the Grid – Living Off the Grid

Jessica:  So, my aunt and uncle actually live off the grid, which is really intriguing. I’ve always been fascinated by it, and I don’t know, I think it would be really cool to do.

Dominique:  Word of advice: Don’t do it. I was sort of living off the grid, and if you need the Internet, if you like hot water, if you like solar power anything… you have the sun, but, I mean… no.

Jessica:  Well, it’s not like they have an outhouse, or they’re using well water when they cook. They actually are hooked up to the city’s power and the sewer system, so it doesn’t seem that bad.

Dominique:  OK. I had to drive an hour and fifteen minutes to get to Costco.

Jessica:  Oh my gosh.

Dominique:  Imagine buying ice cream and having to drive back.

Jessica:  I understand wanting modern conveniences, but it’s almost like camping, in a sense. It sounds like you really like your creature comforts.

Dominique:  I hate camping. Not for me.

Jessica:  Oh, I love it! You’re under the stars, and you’re out in the middle of nowhere. Nobody can bother you.

Dominique:  Animals, bugs… not for me.

Jessica:  I think it sounds really cool.
