  • Thank you a lot for these conversations. I find them really helpful, that’s what I need to improve my listening skills. By the way, I have been in both Leeds and Preston, in last February for work, and I really struggled to understand Northern accent.

  • I have lived in the same big three-bedroom house since I was 4, so I really got used to it, to its size, to its open indoor and outdoor spaces. The neighbourhood is also very quiet and you can find everything you need in the nearby, but great responsibilities come with a large house, and that's what I'm facing in this current quarantine: too much house working to do by yourself. This definitely is not the sort of lifestile I want for me when I get older and be responsible for all of these tasks to do.
    Thinking on that, I'd say that my dream house wold be a small to medium house in a suburban area, with litle rooms, easy to keep, without lots of maintenance, but cosy and in a foot distance to everything you need such as the shops, services, malls, parks, gyms and entertainment.
    An outdoor space to breed a dog would be nice too, since I always wanted to have a large dog. It could be a garden or a backyard in which i could have plants to improve the landscape.

  • Hi Jack, the clip is so wonderful, from which I can learn both British (you) and American (Kate) English. I have a recommendation for you. It would be so terrific if you could make the list of phrases in PDF or word format as an attached file so that it could be downloaded for convenient use. Besides, the explanations should be added to the phrases because sometimes it is hard to understand their meanings. Thank you so much!!!

  • Listening to your conversation is really helpful to improve the language, specially with a natural conversation and contrast of the american and british accent.

  • First, i'd like say how sympathetic is this couple. Very natural and expressive. Congratulations. But,
    I like to know some more details about housing in your city. If you don´t mind, for example; the average rent price for a house with three bedrooms in a neighborhood you described?

  • I think my dream house will have so many rooms that everyone can have one.We can also have enough rooms for visitors.The house must have a garden which we can planted some flowers ,trees ,vegetables,fruits.Every seasons we can see different views,can eat different fruit and vegetables.It is so funny.The house must be quiet.we must some place to park our cars.so we can go to the fun places easily.additional, the house is near to a good school and hospital.In the weekend, we can play basketball in school or borrow some books to read.we can walk our children to the school to make them liking learning.If we get sick, we can go to the hospital in time.I think the house is my dream house.
