Episode 77: Writing an advert
Alice:

Right, how does this sound? Wanted: student or young professional...

Tim:

... male student or young professional.

Alice:

Ok. From the top. Wanted: male student or young professional for bright, sunny room in flatshare.

Tim:

... in mixed flatshare ...

Alice:

... for bright, sunny room in mixed flatshare. Must be clean, tidy and easy-going. Close to shops, pubs and buses. Reasonable rent.

Helen:

Shouldn't we say something about the cat? He might be allergic.

Alice:

Ooh, yeah, good point. Must be clean, tidy, easy-going and must like cats. Ooh, and shall we say something about, you know, the dishwasher, tv, broadband.

Helen:

Yeah, put 'all mod cons'.

Alice:

Ok, mixed flatshare with all mod cons. Shall I read it back to you?

Tim:

Yeah, and then call the small ads department at the Gazette. Or we could go with the Courier.
