Listen to the describing† the place and houses where you live

Today on English Bites we're asking people about their houses. Are they big or small? How do you describe the place where you live?



ALEX: A four room, four-bedroom house. It's got a Mediterranean feel, it's kind of got calm, warm colours. It's pretty spacious and it's got a pretty backyard. It's got a two-car garage. A pretty standard house and a lot of the houses on the street all look the same.

I think it was designed by the same architect.

SAM: It's a red brick house, a two-storey red brick house that has a garage and my parent's family room, a family room, my room and my brother's room. And we have a pool, a swimming pool outside and a small garden.

SARAH:
It's a semi-detached townhouse, so it's got two bedrooms upstairs and also a study and downstairs I've got the lounge room and the kitchen and a sort of built on dining room onto that. So it's not very big but it's enough.

JUSTIN:
It's an old house, probably 100 years old, and it's got lots of rose bushes and a big back yard with a shed and some fruit trees.
It's got very high ceilings and wooden floorboards. There's about five bedrooms and a big kitchen and a big lounge room.

MELITA:
It's a red brick house, it's got a quite a big front yard, quite a big backyard, has three bedrooms, one bathroom and it's got a top storey as well.

SUSAN:
My house is a small white house with a big garden and lots of windows, and lots of doors I guess. It has a big garden.

Notice: Describing houses




Itís a two storey red brick house that has a garage and my parentís room, a family room, my room and my brotherís room. And we have a swimming pool outside and a small garden.



They use lots of adjectives.

My house is a small white house with a big garden and lots of windows, and lots of doors I guess.

So even using simple adjectives, you can build quite a good description of a house.
