Interviewer Today, we're talking to Jonathan Winters about life in the future. Jonathan, what will our homes be like in the future ?
Jonathan Well , they might not look very different from what they do today but there (CERTAINLY - BE) differences. In twenty years' time homes (BECOME) smaller. This is because more and more people (LIVE) in crowded cities. However, designers (UNDOUBTEDLY - FIND) ways of making small homes more comfortable. For example, the homes of the future (HAVE) walls that can be used so that space can be used in different ways. Scientists (ALSO - INVENT) glass that can change from transparent to black. Transparent glass lets light and heat in and out. Black glass keeps it in . This (HELP) us to control the temperature of our homes.
Interviewer (THERE - BE) any other changes to the way we live ?
Jonathan Yes, one major change. Experts predict that by 2025 humans (LIVE) on the moon. One can only imagine what homes there (LOOK) like. And I think that by then many of us (TAKE) at least one holiday in space and maybe even to the moon.
