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.


  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!

Ifi have to live in a house or a flat in another country, I will prefer to share it with the person that is smart, responsible. honest and well-mannered. I want a smart person to be my housemate or flatmate because when I have a problem, whether it is a small or big problem, he can help me to solve the problem. Furthermore, he has to have a responsibility to ensure that our house or apartment is always clean and safe. For instance, he should not litter the house or the flat and he should not allow a stranger to come. For me, an honest housemate or flatmate is a must because I don't want to quarrel with him just because he likes to lie to me. Also, I don't like a friend who steals something from me when I am not at home. My flatmate or housemate must also have a good attitude and behaviour. For example, when I am studying in my room, he will not make a noise that can disrupt me.

Now, i am a student so i am sharing room with 2 classmates. I see that is so fun and happy when you haven't to eat, sleep, cook by myself. But that isnt all. Sometimes, i just want have private room because I and my roomates haven't the same hobbies and schedules . I think when i have a job after graduating, i will rent a single room with bathroom.

I don't mind sharing the room with others. I don't smoke, so i would prefer a non-smoker as my roommate. I eat meat, so his/her eating preferences don't matter to me. I'm a night person, but i want to change myself. So, i would prefer someone who goes to bed early.

i prefer to shar a house or a flat with referenced people. They mustn't smoke and they don't have to be noisy people. I prefer if they have my same hobbies and i don't mind if they are foreign people. I am excited to discover new cultures and to hear stories about their countries. It is fantastic if they are excellents cooks or if they love animals, like me.
