Talking about yourself

Where you live

Here are some of the things you could put in when talking about where you live.

Start with these, and add more things you know are correct.

A house.
  • J'habite.......... Put in the town or village you live in.
  • J'habite une maison/un appartement. You can add to this what kind of house or flat you live in.
  • Il y a ....chambres. Here you could put in the number of bedrooms.
  • Ma maison/mon appartement est....... Put in an adjective to describe your house or flat: remember to make the adjective masculine if you are talking about a flat, or feminine if you are talking about a house.
  • J'ai une chambre pour moi/Je partage ma chambre avec............ If you share your bedroom, put in the person's name here.
  • Ma chambre est......... Put in an adjective here, and remember that chambre is feminine, so the adjective should be as well.
