Bài mẫu chủ đề “Describe an apartment or a house that you would like to live in”
You should say:
What it would look like
How big it would be
Where it would be located
And explain how feel about this apartment or house
At the moment, I am sharing a dorm with 4 of my close friends. They are all genuine people and I love to live with them but in the long-term, I would like to move into a condominium in the center of Ho Chi Minh city to start my adult life. I already have a complete picture of my dream home, and how I would like it to be decorated. So, regarding the location, like I mentioned before, it has to be located in the city center so District 5 and 10 are now on the top of my list. Although I did consider the nearby suburb, I think it would take me forever to get to work, let alone face the terrible traffic jams. Secondly, my apartment will be equipped with all top-notch amenities, such as the laundry-folding machine, automatic air conditioning and lighting system, … These features will be connected by a home automation system, which I can control by verbal command through digital assistants like Alexa or Siri. Finally, I want it to have a spacious balcony overlooking a garden, where I can sit back and relax after a long day at work. This apartment would definitely make me feel at ease and give me a sense of stability in my life. I am saving up so I can make my dreams come true as soon as possible.
