This is Dialogue Frog's podcast in English. So, the other day I noticed on my Netflix account-
...there are a ton of like, shows about big houses or tiny houses or remote houses, all kinds of houses, to the point where I'm like, who is watching these things?
But also I kinda of wanted to watch them to see all of the different kinds of houses. Do you watch that kinda show?
I think it makes me ungrateful for what I have.
Oh yeah. But do you still have like this, a dream home, like, is there a kind of house or a location for a house, or a kind of house in a kind of location that if you had ultimate resources you'd want to live there?
I think a log cabin in the mountains, surrounded by various forest creatures who all stay within a safe distance of my home, but they're still there.
So you can see the bears on the hill far away.
Yeah. That's true.
The bears aren't going to eat you, but you can see the bears.
That's true. Yeah.
I, I think I'd still be nervous to see the bears.
Well, there's a stream right there with salmon in it, so they're too busy eating-
-the salmon to, to get me.
That is an excellent idea. Plan to have that, that salmon river next to the log cabin in your mountains. Very good idea.
How 'bout you? What's your dream home like?
I kind of, I would like a house that has a library and like one of those like, uh, towers, like a circular kind of like a castle, but not necessarily a castle.
Oh yeah, yeah.
A Victorian style house, I think they are. And I would want that- I I'd want just a library with a space to read and, and a, a window that faces to the south, so that's it's always bright and sunny. And it needs to have a nice backyard. No bears! No bears in my yard, but a nice garden where I can go out and have coffee and also read and string a hammock.
That sounds very relaxing. Especially the no bears part.
Yes. Okay. Well, this has been another podcast in English with Dialogue Frog. For more episodes of the podcast in English and transcripts and vocabulary lists, please visit our website dialoguefrog.com.
