I played football for my sixth-form school and I am hoping to join a university team. I'm a morning person and I get up early to train and go to the gym. So I would prefer to share with other people who don't like late nights either! Also I am vegetarian and, if possible, I would prefer to share a kitchen with other non-meat eaters.

Tips

  1. If the form is on paper, write clearly. Use capital letters if your handwriting isn't clear.
  2. If there is not much space to write, make a list instead of writing full sentences.
  3. Check it. It's easy to make small mistakes!

Hello,
Please could you correct my writing!!
I prefer a single room off campus, because we spend a lot of time at university, so it is a little bit challenging if I live off campus. I don’t mind to share facilities, so we can try different kind of food. I am a non smoker, I hate smoke’s smell, I can’t even share facilities with smoking people. I like to go for a walk in nature and also I like to gather with my friends and have a drink once a week.

Hi Dawn,

Welcome to LearnEnglish! I'm afraid we don't correct users' writing on the site. I know it would be very useful but unfortunately we are a small team here and we have many thousands of users, so it's just not possible. We do try to answer all questions we get, however, and provide explanations where we can.

i can say, i always spleep early and weak up morning and i like to walking, sometimes i smoke a sigrate but i prefer to avoid smoking people, i enjoy to have silent room but i have'nt problem with share facilities, and i loved with meat eatter and also like vegetarian, and finally i prefer to have a female flatmate if i force to choice a shared flat,

I like to share my room with non-talkative people. Because I want to live in a clean room, I don't want to share with careless people.

I don't mind sharing facilities and I'd like to request a shared room. I don't smoke, so I want non-smoking accommodation. I'm a morning person and get up early to do exercises. I don't stay up too late.

I would you like to share a house or flat with people equal in age, but with different hobbies, so that we can have opportunities for exchange.

I'm twenty-five years old and I want a flamate with the same years also I would like that my
flatmate love cats and rock as I.
I like cook but hate clean after If my flatmate likes clean will be great.

I would like to share a house or an apartment with profesional people because I like to live in a quite place with not much noise, I would like to have my own room, it doesn't matter if a share the bathroom but at the most with two more people and who are clean, I'm not a smoker so I would prefer a non smoker roommates.

I'll be happy to share a flat with people from different cultures or countries. Also, I'll be happier if they are smokers or at least don't mind if I smoke in the room.

I am a introverted person OS i would prefer single room or sharing room with person who have same wavelength to me, with smocking facility. i would also like to prefers a off campus facility to walk alone . would like to share love and compassion with persons in different countries but sorry about room that is my privet world.
