This is the text (if you need help).

A new report describes life in 100 years. There are many tall skyscrapers, underwater cities, and holidays in space. Experts on space and architecture gave their ideas on life in 2116. They said the way we live, work and play will be totally different. They said that 25 years ago, people could not imagine how the Internet would change our lives and how we communicate and learn. The changes in the next century will be more unbelievable.

People gave their predictions about the future. They said we will work from home and have online meetings. We will download a design for furniture or a food recipe and then 'print' the sofa or pizza on our 3D printer. Our home health system will tell us what treatment we need for health problems. We will also take holidays in space and get resources from space. No one said whether people will need to study English.

Back to the future lesson.
