4-day working week

Last year, the CEO of a major coffee company did the unthinkable. He declared that his employees could have Friday afternoons off and still keep their jobs.

In this video lesson we:

  • Look at working schedules around the word
  • Use phrases and vocabulary related to working hours
  • Debate the idea of a 4-day working week
