Third (3rd) lesson

Our house

Many families in London live in flats,
but most people live in their own houses in the suburbs.
We too have a house in a London suburb.
I bought it about fifteen years ago, when I got married.
Like most of London's suburban houses,
it consists of only two floors,
the ground floor and the first floor.

On the ground floor there's the dining-room,
the lounge or sitting-room, the kitchen and the hall.
In the hall we see a stand for hats, coats and umbrellas.
A staircase leads from the hall to the landing of the first floor.
On this floor there are four bedrooms, a bathroom and a lavatory.
On top of the roof there are three chimneys.

In front of the house we have a small garden,
in which we grow flowers: roses, tulips, and so on.
At the back of the house there's a much larger garden
with a lawn and some fruit-trees.
There's also a vegetable garden where we grow all kinds of vegetables,
such as potatoes, cabbages, cauliflowers, onions and tomatoes.

At the side of the house is a garage, where I keep my car.
The garden is enclosed by a fence, with a gate in it.
