Families living in cars

We are focusing on extensive listening on Sundays and posting documentaries that are within the grasp of intermediate English learners, so that they can have a chance of listening for the sake of listening and prove themselves capable of understanding the main ideas in TV programmes originally intended for native speakers of English.

Today's entry deals with the way the economic crisis is hitting thousands of American families and forcing them to live in cars. Hard Times Generation: Families Living in Cars, is a CBS 60 Minute programme where Scott Pelley takes the cameras to central Florida to document another form of family homelessness: kids and their parents forced to live in cars.

You can find the transcript of the documentary here.
