Peter : Kelly, will you help me take these things to the car? Kelly : OK, which car do you want me to put them in? Peter : Bring them to my wife's car. Kelly : Which one is hers'? Peter : The blue SUV in front of the Honda. Kelly : What should I take first? Peter : That chair over there, but please be careful with it. It was a gift from my mother-in-law. Kelly : Don't worry, I won't drop it. Wow, it's really heavy. I don't think I can move it by myself. Peter : Let me help you with that. I don't want you to hurt your back. Kelly : Where are you taking all this stuff? Peter : Didn't I tell you? We're moving to Florida? Kelly : You're moving now? I knew you were moving, but I thought you said you were moving next month. Peter : Yes, that's true, but my wife found a new apartment on the Internet the other day and she wants to move right away.

Roger: Oh hi, Ann. How have you been? And how's your new apartment working out?
Ann: Well, that's what I'm calling about. You see, I've decided to look for a new place.
Roger: Oh, what's the problem with your place now? I thought you liked the apartment.
Ann: Oh, I do, but it's a little far from campus, and the commute is just killing me. Do you think you could help? I thought you might know more about the housing situation near the school.
Roger: Okay, what's your budget like? I mean how much do you want to spend on rent?
Ann: Uh, somewhere under $200 a month, including utilities, if I could. Oh, and I'd prefer to rent a furnished apartment.
Roger: Hmm. And anything else?
Ann:Yeah, I need a parking space.
Roger: Well, I know there's an apartment complex around the corner that seems to have a few vacancies. I'll drop by there on my way to class today. Ann: Hey, thanks a lot.

Andre: I saw your door open and I just wanted to make sure everything was okay. Did you just move in?
Ellie: No, I’m moving out. As you can see, I’m doing last-minute packing. I think I’ve used up 10 rolls of packing tape!
Andre: This looks like a major undertaking. Are you moving yourself?
Ellie: No, the movers are coming with the moving van tomorrow morning. I’m moving a few things into storage, and I’ll take a few of the perishables and essentials in my car, but they’ll be doing the heavy lifting. No loading for me. Before they come, though, I need to disassemble this desk and this bookcase. It’ll be a long afternoon.
Andre: I can see that. Are you moving far?
Ellie: No, I’m only moving about a mile from here to another apartment.
Andre: Oh, so you’re not moving out of the area.
Ellie: No, I’m not.
Andre: I’m glad to hear that. Let’s make a deal: I’ll help you disassemble your furniture if you’ll promise to invite me over to your new place sometime.
Ellie: Really? Are you sure you’re willing to do that?
Andre: Sure. Hand me those tools and I’ll have it done in no time.
Ellie: Boy, am I glad I left my door open.
Andre: Yeah, so am I. iherb.com - натуральная косметика, БАДы, товары для дома и детей и многое другое по очень низким ценам. Используйте код VEF438 для получения скидки 10 долларов при первой покупке.
Jackie: For this week’s podcastsinenglish.com I’m talking to Emily, hello Emily... Emily: Hello Jackie: ... and Emily, um... I’m talking to you because I understand you’ve just moved into a new flat, is that right? Emily: Yes, that’s right. I just moved in um... last week. Jackie: Last week? Right, tell me um... what is the main difference then between your old flat and your new flat? Emily: The main difference is that my old flat was much more modern than the one I have just moved to. Jackie: So you... you’ve moved into an older flat, have you? Emily: Yes, yes. It’s got a lot more character. Jackie: So, it looks nicer, does it? Emily: Yes, much nicer it’s, it’s really beautiful. Jackie: What about the size? Are they... is the... is the new flat er... much bigger than the old one? Emily: Um... the size is about the same, actually. Um... there are two bedrooms in both flats. Jackie: I think you said that your old flat, um... it had a garden, does this one have a garden as well? Emily: Well no, it has a balcony this one. So it’s really nice I can go... I can sit outside and have breakfast on the balcony in the morning. Um... and no one can see me having breakfast, it’s very private. Jackie: Right. So you’ve gone from um... a modern place and you’ve moved into an old place, what was your reason for moving then? Emily: Well, I... I like old buildings and that’s a big reason for moving. Um... another reason is because I love cooking and the kitchen in the flat I have moved to, um... has a much bigger kitchen and it is... it is much easier to cook in and there’s a nice big table where people can sit down, um... Jackie: So you can eat in the kitchen? Emily: Yes, you can eat in the kitchen and there’s a lot of space to cook in which is really nice. The kitchen in my old flat was much smaller, um... but there was a dishwasher, er... which was nice sometimes, but for me it is not really a big problem. Jackie: So you don’t have a dishwasher in your new place? Emily: No, but I don’t mind that. Jackie: Okay, and are they both in the same area of town? Emily: No, not really. Um... another reason for moving is because the flat, um, my new flat, um... is much closer to work, I can walk there it only takes five minutes on foot. My old flat um... was further away from work and I had to take a taxi in everyday. Um... and it got really expensive and... and also really enjoy walking, so that’s another reason why I wanted to move. Um... there are also two other reasons, the first one, um... was because, um... a really good friend of mine lives upstairs and it’s really nice, so we can have dinner together sometimes and... and chat. Another reason is because there’s some really good shops nearby and a supermarket so it is very easy for me to do my shopping there. And um... also there are lots of nice café’s and restaurants nearby too. Jackie: Great. Is it er... more or less expensive though? Emily: It’s actually less expensive so, it’s another reason. Jackie: Great. Good well... so I look forward to your house warming party. Emily: You’re very welcome.
