Let’s talk about different types of houses.
Let’s talk about different types of houses. Tell me about the house/flat you live in.
There are many different types of houses: detached, semi-detached and terraced houses, cottages, bungalows, mansions, etc. But in our country people mostly live in blocks of flats.
I live in Mogilev (in Krichev) in Dimitrov Avenue (in Pervomayskaya Street, in Nepokoryonnykh Boulevard). Our flat is on the ground floor (the second floor) of a five-storeyed (nine-storeyed) block of flats. It’s a three-room (two-room) flat with all modern conveniences, such as central heating, electricity, gas, hot and cold running water and a telephone.
Our living room is quite large. We have a suite [swi:t] of furniture with a carpet to match. In the centre of the room there is a big table. Near the window there are two arm-chairs and a sofa. There is a TV-set opposite the sofa.
My room isn’t large either. As a matter of fact, my room is my haven. I have everything I need in it. I live by the motto ‘My room is my castle’. It is a place where I can relax. When I want to be on my own, I can just shut my door and tell everyone not to bother me. There is not much furniture in it. There is a book-case, a writing-table, two chairs and a sofa-bed where I sleep at night.
Our kitchen isn’t very large. There is a gas-stove with an oven, a table, four stools, a refrigerator and a cupboard. The kitchen serves us as a dining-room.
Do you like the place where you are living now?
Our flat is quite an ordinary one, but I like it all the same. I think everyone loves his home because it is always the loveliest, the dearest and the best place for us. It is true that there is no place like home.
Ask me what my flat looks like.
Your friend wants to decorate his room. Give him some advice on how to furnish it.
I can give only general advice. I think everyone wants to have a cosy place to live in, so it is better not to make it too cluttered.
How do you see an ideal house/flat?
As for my future house I want it to be a flat in the centre of a big city. I think three rooms will be enough for me. And besides I want to have a summer cottage somewhere at the seaside. I want it to be a big modern one-storeyed house.
