Alba lives in a new house. Now she is in the centre of the city because that way she is close to the academy/school. She invites Esteban to lunch to show hm the new apartment.
Esteban: Hello, Alba. Thanks for the invitation. How is this new flat going for you?
Alba: You’re welcome, Esteban. This flat is fantastic. It is central and well connected. You can see that it is very spacious and bright. Also, everything is very clean and tidy.
Esteban: It sounds good. Hum, the entrance to the house looks almost like a palace. I want to see the rest of the flat.
Alba: Yes, of course. In the hall you can see three doors. This is the door to my room, that is the door to my roommate Marta’s room and that is the door to my partner Alejandro.
Esteban: This is your room? How pretty!
Alba: Yes, it’s beautiful and complete. It has very practical furniture. In this closet here I hang clothes, on that little table I keep the notes from class and in those drawers there I keep the sheets.
Esteban: Do you sleep in this bed? It’s very uncomfortable, is not it?
Alba: No! Not at all! I sleep very well The mattress seems very hard but it is good for the back.
Esteban: What is that ?
Alba: That ‘s the bathroom. We have two. This is the small one but that is the big one.
Esteban: It’s an advantage. So you avoid the queues in the morning.
Alba: That ‘s true. When the alarm rings , I can go to the bathroom without problems. That ‘s where the lounge is. There is a TV, a sofa, several chairs and a small balcony. There my flatmates and I get some air when the weather is good. I tell them my problems and they listen.
Esteban: Does this flat cost a lot?
Alba: The room costs 250 euros, plus water, electricity and community expenses.
Esteban: It’s very cheap. I remember that the other flat costs 350 euros. That is more expensive. You got lucky. I pay 400 euros. I can not find an apartment like this .
Alba: A flatmate is leaving this apartment in a month. If you can not find a cheap apartment, you can live here. You only need to sign the contract and pay the deposit. The owner of the apartment is reliable.
Esteban: Is it a good idea? Cohabitation can kill a friendship.
