Everyday English... for sure!

It's a shame! This video contains too many spelling mistakes... like it should have been "incompetence" and not incompitance...

and to make it complete, a funny Dutch TV commercial for an English language institute...

24h: A Swedish architect agency designed this marvel in Dragspelhuset, Lake Övre Gla, Sweden

A dream come true! ...I want one just like that...And it is retractable!

Extract from its description: :
During the summer the building can change its form or, like a butterfly, unfold its wings for extra shelter during rainy days.
The addition is for a house from the year 1800, located on the banks of Ovre Gla Lake in the Swiss nature reserve of Glaskogen.
Regulations limited the amount of construction that could be done on the exterior of the building and proscribed a 4.5 meter green space around the stream that encloses the area. 24H came up with a telescoping cabin, adding to the usable surface and arching out over the stream. This accentuates the organic shapes of the design, which emulates the rustic surroundings.

Isn't the inside as fantastic as the outside?
