Today's blog post is all about the home. What kind of home do you live in? Are you in a flat/apartment, student halls, or a house? If you're in a house, is it terraced, semi-detached or detached?
What are the rooms in your home like? Most homes have at least one bedroom, a bathroom, kitchen, living room and dining room. Perhaps you have a balcony to enjoy the sunshine, or a garden where you grow flowers or vegetables.
If you're in a flat, it's important to note the difference between British and American English. In British English, we start with the ground floor, then first, second, etc. In American English, on the other hand, the first floor is the floor on the ground!
Some people are very interested in interior design and spend a long time choosing furniture, paint colours, etc. Picking the right frame for a photo or a nice rug to go in the middle of the living room can make a big difference!
If you share your home, do you get on well with your housemates/flatmates? Common causes of arguments are whose turn it is to do the washing-up, buy the milk, clean the bathroom or one person making too much noise.
Why not post a comment below describing your home now, or your ideal home?
