Mad English Lab

If you have a little free time at your workplace, why not spend it learning things?

I live overseas and every day I see people who are working pretty boring, low-paying jobs. These jobs require them to sit in one place for long periods of time.

Actually, no–many of them ARE doing something. They are looking at their smartphones, texting, doing stuff on social media, watching a video. But what are they NOT doing?
