Where we live
V.: This way, please. Make yourself at home. This is our living room.
A.: What a cosy room! There isn’t much furniture and there is much space here. Well, how many rooms are there in your flat all in all?
V.: This is a four room flat. In addition to this room we have two bedrooms and a study.
A.: Vic, and what is monthly rent for the flat?
V.: Well, the rent is about 20—25 roubles per month.
A.: Really? It’s not too much, is it? And how much did you pay for this flat?
V.: As a matter of fact, we got this flat free. You know we have three types of dwelling in this country. You may have either a private house or a cooperative flat or a state flat. The latter is given to a renter free of charge.
А.: I see. It’s not bad to get such a flat tree of charge.
V.: It seems to me that we are speaking too much. It’s time to have a drink. Tea, coffee or coke?
A.: A cup of coffee, please.
V.: OK. I'll be in a minute. Here we are. Help yourself, please.
A.: Thanks a lot.
