English Conversation Topic 56
Talking about homes in English

Conversation Starters
We sometime say in English that "home is where the heart is". Talk from your heart about the topic of homes, using the questions below as a starting point. If you do not have a conversation partner, try to answer each question yourself, using complete English sentences.
1. What kind of home do you live in?

2. Do you like your current home? Why or why not?

3. How long have you lived in your current home?

4. How many different homes have you lived in so far in your life?

5. Which has been your favorite place to live? Which home did you like the least?

6. Is your current home in a convenient location? Why or why not?

7. Do you have a favorite room in your home? If yes, which room and why?

Discussion Questions
Now try to have longer conversations about homes using the open-ended questions below. If you do not have a conversation partner, think of your own answers in English, using complete sentences.
1. If you had a choice, would you rather have a home in the country or in the city? How would those two homes be different?

2. Someone once said, "Any place I lay my hat is home". Do you feel this way? Can you easily go to a new house or do you prefer to always live in one place?

3. What would be your "dream home"? Try to describe it in detail.

4. What are the advantages and disadvantages to living in an apartment rather than a detached house.

5. Can you imagine an "environmentally friendly" house? What would it be like?
