Describing My House

Some students asked me to start a thread so you could post your monologues. I prefer that you DON’T write down your monologue, only practice saying it aloud. But AFTER you describe your house in class, you can do this Writing Exercise, OK? Not before. Do NOT learn your monologue by heart! Preparing it only means thinking about it and saying sentences aloud, not writing it! I’m more interested in a Speaking Exercise, not in a Writing Exercise. OK? So wait, please! 😉

  6. Good work, people! Keep it up!

  7. Asking for directions in Getafe

    Peter Excuse me, could you tell me: Where is the train station? Is it far from here?
    Eva Err…. it’s about ten minutes on foot.
    Peter Oh well, it’s near here.
    Eva Yes. It’s very easy to get there. Go straight on, and on, and on, until Plaza de la Constitución (Constitution Square). There, you will see the Town Hall in front of you, and then, turn right, at Calle Madrid. It’s the main street.
    Then after about 100 meters you will find a small church in a street on the right Called Hospitalillo. Go straight on, past this church, along the main street, and you will see there are many shops. Keep on until you get to a fountain. It looks like the Cybeles Fountain in Madrid, but smaller and uglier. Then turn left, go straight on, and on and finally you will find the Train Station. You can’t miss it!!

    Peter Thank you very much, bye

    Eva Bye

    Esperanza González

    Awesome, Esperanza!!! We’ll publish this with the picture you sent of La Cibelina!!! Thanks for your work! 🙂



    I’m going to describe my house.
    My house is in Getafe, in the city centre. It’s a flat on the first floor of a building.
    When you come in you can find a large hall. On the left there is a kitchen with a little balcony. In the kitchen we usually have breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you come back to the hall, in front of it you can see the dining room, with a balcony too. And on the right there is a long corridor where it is you can find our marriage bedroom with an ensuite bathroom. Opposite this room you can find another bathroom. Finally, on the right there are besides two more rooms. One of them is our daughter’s bedroom, and the other one we use as a study the other one.
    We like our house. It’s a big house in a good situation convenient location / good area, but it’s a bit dark and there aren’t windows in the bathrooms.

    Awesome, Jose!!! Congratulations!!

  9. My house is at the corner of the street. Its a very big house. My parents are fond of gardening so theres a garden with a lot of flowers and plants at the entrance of my home.
    There are three bedrooms in my house. Also, theres a living room in the centre of the house. We call it tv lounge. The dinning room is to the right of the living room, next to kitchen.
    I like my house, and its location, as theres a bus stop and a park near my house.

  10. Well done! 🙂 No mistakes! The apostrophes are missing, but I bet it’s a technical matter, right?

    Improvable stuff…
    “at the corner of A street” ? (because you don’t mention the area)
    “in the frontyard” ? (instead of “at the entrance of my house”)

    Nice day!

  11. Well, I need to start off by pointing out that it’s located in the suburbs of Tehran,capital of Iran. Actually far from the hustle and bustle of the city.
    A second feature which I should mention is that my house is humongous i mean that’s one of the biggest ones in my neighborhood.
    And I shouldn’t forget to mention that it is has a perfect view, as a matter of fact it’s in the heart of a jungle.
