I live in a house now with my parents and my pet, but soon I will go to university, so I should look for a flat, because I believe it is more advantages for me.

my flat is small ,it only have two bedroom one living room one small kitchen and one small bathroom , i really want to have a large house , but it is impossible in China!unless you are a very rich person ,because the prices of houses are too expensive in China! if you want to buy a large house , you at least have to work for fifty years! trust me this is true ! i hate the prices of the houses in China!

Now I live in flat with my family.There's three bed rooms,a living room, a dining room and a kitchen.I don't like living in flat. I don't have a space for garden and for my pets. When I was kid, I lived in a house with big garden .I always played with my dogs in the garden. There're alot of flowers and birds . There was even a small stream in my garden. Birds came near that stream to take bath.My country was developing country when I was kid.So electricity was cut off alot. When it's shut down, my family and I sat down together infront of my house,looking at the stars on Fullmoon night. I spended more time with my family in the past than these days. Now l rarely talk to my family and I always spend time by studying.btw I will never forget my childhood memory in that house. That's my favourite part of life .

I live in flat with my mother and sister but my sister already moved out.
I think a house is better than flat because I can keep the pet.
But a house is too expensive.I will live house when I can afford to buy.
