Use the words below to talk to your co-workers, classmates, or new friends to about houses. Having conversations in English may be scary at first, but it is a great way to practice your English and get to know people better.
This video clip is from the TV show Flip or Flop. The couple is in the business of buying old houses, fixing them, and selling them again. Watch as they inspect a house, then take a vocabulary quiz!
Don’t be shy and practice saying these words and phrases to yourself, first. If you are meeting someone for the first time, introduce yourself.
This topic is only a suggestion. If asking someone about their house is hard to do, talk about something that is important to you or about something that interests you! It’s always easier to talk about something you are passionate about! Once the conversation is flowing, you’ll be surprised how much you have in common with people from different walks of life!
