Talking about the House
How many rooms are there in your house?
There are 5 rooms: a living room, 2 bedrooms, a bathroom and a kitchen.
Which floor is your bedroom on?
My bedroom is on the second floor of a three-storey house.
Is it big or small?
It’s not very spacious, just enough to put the necessary furniture in.
What colour is your bedroom painted?
It’s painted red, my favourite colour.
Do you love your room? Why?
I love it very much because it is my private space whenever I go home.
What furniture does your bedroom contain?
It contains a bed, a desk, and a clothing closet.
What do you do in it?
Well, I spend most of my free time there reading books, playing games on the computer, or sleeping.
How much time do you spend in your room?
About 7 hours a day, especially in the evening.
Do you share your room with anyone else?
No, everyone in my family has their own room, so I stay there alone.
Do you rent it or own it? – We own our house.
I love to stretch out on the sofa and watch TV.
All my family can sit on the sofa together comfortably.
My dad has his favourite armchair and no one else sits in it.
In our living room, there is one easy chair — it’s very comfortable, so there are arguments about who can sit in it!
I sometimes do my homework on the coffee table in the living room.
The bookshelf in our living room is crammed full of books.
Mum forbids us to put hot drinks on the side tables in case we damage the surface.
We have a big flat-screen TV in the living room, but the only person who watches it is my dad.
My parents have a big music system in the living room.
But they like to listen to all their old music.
I go to my room and listen to music there.
There are many shelves in our living room.
Full of books, plants, and some ornaments too.
My mum loves to keep plants around the house.
We have two big plants in the living room.
It makes it feel more comfortable.
We have pictures of the family on the living room walls.
Me and my brother as kids, and some pictures of my mum and dad too.
There’s a small mirror on one of the living room walls.
I don’t think anyone uses it though.
My mum closes the curtains as soon as the sun goes down.
It’s nice to use the fan on hot days in the living room.
The lamp in the living room provides a much softer kind of light.
My mum loves to have flowers in the living room.
So she bought this really nice glass vase to put flowers in.
There’s a clock on the shelf in the living room.
I don’t know who uses it to tell the time, as we all have smartphones.
