Текст слайда: The place we live in
Текст слайда: We have a flat of our own. It is rather spacious and large, a 4-room flat, to be exact. It is situated on the second floor of a nine-storey block of flats. That’s why fortunately we don’t have to take a lift. And it is a plus as far as I am concerned, because I am afraid of lifts. The house is a short walk from the trolleybus stop. Our flat overlooks the children’s playground which is very convenient.
Текст слайда: The flat is quite warm, light and cozy. We have all modern conveniences: central heating, gas, electricity, cold and hot running water and a chute to carry rubbish down. The flat is fitted with a number of domestic appliances that simplify our life and reduce the amount of time required to complete household chores. We really can’t get by without all sorts of electronic devices and smart gadgets that do things for us.
Текст слайда: They say that it really has a homely and welcoming feel. We like it to be clean, bright and what is called sunny in the flat. Mum is a fan of minimalism, so there is little furniture in our flat. But various decorations such as beautiful candles, fashionable curtains, thick carpets, wonderful pictures make it lovely and comfortable. There is a kitchen, a bathroom, a toilet and a hall in our flat.
Текст слайда: The four rooms of our flat are: a living-room and 3 bedrooms. The floor is parquet in the rooms and linoleum in the kitchen. All the rooms are papered with wallpaper of a different pattern and colour. There is a balcony in my parents’ bedroom where we grow flowers and keep different things. In summer we enjoy having coffee there.
Текст слайда: The living-room is the largest and most comfortable room in the flat. In the middle of the room we have a square-table with six chairs round it. To the right of the dinner-table there is a wall-unit which has several sections: a sideboard, a wardrobe and some shelves. At the opposite wall there is a piano and a stool before it. Between the two large windows there is a little table with a colour TV set on it. Near the TV set there are two cosy armchairs. A small round table, a divan-bed and a standard lamp are in the left-hand corner. This small table is for newspapers and magazines.
Текст слайда: My parents’ bedroom is smaller than the living-room and a bit darker as there is only one window in it. There are bedside-tables and a bed between them. An alarm-clock and a small lamp with a pink lamp-shade are on one of the tables. In the left-hand corner there is a dressing-table with a big mirror. In this room we have a built-in wardrobe. I can’t but mention my elder brother’s bedroom. It is equipped with all up-to-date devices which a modern advanced DJ needs today. It is thoughtfully arranged so that to create space both for work and having parties.
Текст слайда: The third room is my study. There isn't much furniture in it, only the most necessary. It has a writing-table and an armchair before it. In the righthand corner there is a bookcase full of books, magazines and newspapers. A small table with a radio is standing in the left-hand corner. Near it there is a sofa with some funky cushions. In my opinion, the study is the best room in our flat. But the warmest place is the kitchen — the place where the whole family gathers every evening not only to have supper together, but also to talk and rest.
Текст слайда: However we would like to move in a cottage in the outskirts for it is great not to share a yard with other people, not to depend on your neighbours and not to worry about making too much noise. We are going to build a special place for barbeque and a playground for my little cousins. It will be amazing to breathe fresh air and enjoy silence there. It will be a real escape from traffic, noise and smog.
