Elementary School Year 4 Speaking

Speak about typical English homes.

I’d like to tell you about typical English homes.

Some English families live in flats, but lots of people have got their own houses. There are two floors in a traditional English house.

Two or three bedrooms and a bathroom are upstairs. The living-room, the dining-room, the kitchen and a hall are downstairs.

The living-room is usually a favourite room in the house. There is always a sofa, some chairs and armchairs in it. There is often a carpet on the floor. It makes the room comfortable.

The British people usually have a fireplace in the living-room. They sometimes call this room a sitting-room because they often spend evenings in armchairs near the fireplace. They read books, watch TV, listen to music or sit around and talk.

People in Britain like their homes and often say:

  • There is no place like home.
  • East or West, home is best.
  • My home is my castle.
  • Home, sweet home.
