Speaker 1: A lot of people complain about the traffic where I live, but I can’t say I mind it, really, and I like the fact that there is always something to do after work. I live in a flat in the centre and although it is very small and the neighbours sometimes make a lot of noise, it’s conveniently close to the library where I work and the shops, so it’s not too bad. I only wish things were more affordable.
Speaker 2: I suppose after a difficult day at work, all I want to do is relax and just take it easy. I might get into a nice warm bath and listen to music through my headphones or go for a long evening walk. In winter I often just curl up in an armchair in front of the fire with a good book. At the weekends I enjoy gardening. I wouldn’t want a large garden, though. I’m quite happy just pottering around on my balcony looking after the plants there. Some people are always on the go, but that’s just not for me.
Speaker 3: I hardly ever get to see my friends as most of them live on the other side of town, it’s a difficult area to get to by public transport and I don’t drive. That means I’m lucky if I see them once every six months or so. I don’t have a problem with my surroundings – there are some very pretty parks around here. My neighbours are all right, too, but I feel rather isolated here. I miss going out and having everything I need nearby. I think it was a mistake to come here and I am going to look for a new place soon.
Speaker 4: There are just never enough hours in the day. From the minute I wake up in the morning, it’s non-stop with work all day and then my evening classes to get a Master’s degree. There’s a lot of reading, as you can imagine, so I don’t really have time to go out much, or pay attention to what’s going on in the area. But I don’t mind. I prefer to make a point of going to bed early so I have plenty of energy to keep up with everything I have to do each day.
Speaker 5: I’m always out with my friends. We like going to the cinema or going shopping. You find such lovely shopping centres about nowadays that you always come home loaded with goodies. I look forward to going out at the weekends when I can stay out late. My friends and I often go to parties or concerts. In the summer we are always at the beach and often stay there late just talking for hours. I can’t stand staying home, it’s much more fun to be out with people you know.
