Transcripts:

Saleswoman: Ah, yes. Mr. Garcia. I took your call. Please take a seat. You said on the phone that you’re studying at the University. 

Student: That’s right. I’m currently in University digs, but I have decided to move out. 

Saleswoman: May I ask why?

Student: Well, the accommodation itself is fine. Very lovely, in fact. But it’s catered 

accommodation, and I find having to have my meals at fixed times somewhat restrictive. I tried to get into self-catering accommodation, but there’s very little of that available and, as I will be a second-year student next academic year. I wasn’t given a place.

Saleswoman:  I see. We have many students coming to us who are in the same situation. Do you intend to live alone or share with someone?

Student:  I have two friends from Spain and from Colombia who would like to share with me. We thought it would be a good idea to rent a small house together. Does that sound sensible to you? 

Saleswoman: Sure. In fact, I recommend it. Where are you from? Mr. Garcia? 

Student: I’m from Mexico. 

Saleswoman: Really? I went there on holiday, last year. Lovely! So you’re looking for a three-bedroom house. How about a flat? Would that be okay? 

Student: Yes, that would be fine too. But if the rents are roughly the same, we’d prefer a house with a small garden, just somewhere, where we can sit outside, in the sunshine. 

Saleswoman: Of course, we do have houses, but more flats are available at the moment. Is there any particular area you’d like to live in?

Student: Obviously, we’d like to be close to the University as possible. But not too close. My experience is that people living in the proximity of the uni tend to get many people dropping in. We’d like to avoid that. 

Saleswoman: I understand. Places further from the uni are also a little cheaper in general. Before we go on, could I take down a few details?
