1. What kind of housing/accommodation do you live in?
I live in a spacious apartment with the area of 170 square meters. To be more specific, it is a high-rise brick flat with 2 bedrooms in a housing estate in downtown. Behind our flats there lies a river and we can jog and take a walk along with it.
2. Who do you live with?
Well, I've been living with my parents in our apartment since I was a child. This year, the neighbor's dog gave birth to three baby dogs and one of them became our new family member.
3. How long have you lived there?
Since last year. My family moves a lot, like every five years or so, because dad’s always changing his job, um… in a positive way of course. So we are moving around and trying to get a better place to live in.
4. Do you plan to live there for a long time?
Definitely! Not only because it is the place in which I grew up, but because most of my friends also live nearby so that we can accompany each other from time to time.
5.(If you answer you haven’t lived there long) What’s the difference between where you are living now and where you have lived in the past?
There are two major differences. The first one is the size of the apartments. The place where we are living now is much bigger than the previous one. The second one is the friendly neighbors. We got a bunch of friendly neighbors who watch our back when we are absent.
6. Can you describe the place where you live?
My apartment is not a traditionally residential place, but transformed from a factory building. Because of the high ceiling and big beams, my father designed a two-floor apartment and renovated it himself. As you can imagine, the staircase is my “playing ground” during my
7. Which room does your family spend most of the time in?
It's the kitchen definitely! In great love of cooking, everyone in my family is kind of a top cook. We study recipes, discuss them with each other and invent new dishes in our tiny but warm kitchen.
8. What do you usually do in your house/flat/room?
Normally, I invite old friends to my flat to share and understand of a good book, a film or a song in which we learn a lot from each other and develop our knowledge of the world. During sharing, we talk, laugh and weep, building warm atmosphere in my flat.
9. Are the transport facilities to your home very good?
Thanks to the location, the transport ways are enough for traveling. The nearby metro line can reach the city center as well as my school and a new tramway is also under construction.
10. Do you prefer living in a house or a flat?
You know, it's quite hard to say because different residents give you different feelings but if I have to pick one, I would like to live in a flat as flats are usually situated in downtown so I wouldn't be lonely.
11. Please describe the room you live in.
I live in a room which is decorated in Scandinavian style. To be more specific, I have a king-size bed, as well as a sofa next to the French window. The most relaxing time for me is to stay in my room, lay on the sofa with sound system open and books on hand.
12. What part of your home do you like the most?
To be honest, it's the sitting-room. With an exquisite tapestry suspending on the wall, the whole style makes me feel go back to middle age while smart TV with a large screen brings me return to the modern life.
13. Do you live in a house or a flat?
Recently，I live in a flat in downtown area. Smaller than the house as it is, my flat locates in a
housing estate which is right behind the commercial area with convenient transportation and
comprehensive living infrastructure. Due to the ever-increasing housing price, most people here live in a flat than in a house.
14. What can you see outside the window?
Since I live in the 18th floor, I can see many things near and far. I can see the whole community, a market about half a mile away, the main street behind it and also a railway afar. Also, if the weather permits, I can see the mountain and crystal clear sky when I look far far away.
