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!

Normally my preference accommodation is single room . But it depends on the situation that it is short term or long term .I don't mind living shared room if it is short term .I am not sensitive person regard with foods .I would also prefer sharing the life of experiences from around the world .Even though I am a non-smoker , it doesn't matter smokers or non-smokers people who share with me.

If I have to share a flat or house with someone I would like to share it with quiet people whom prefer
quiet music to study and to listen when he has some free time, I would prefer an active person that 
prefer to get out frecuently and not stay laying in a sofa to watch tv or sleep, maybe if it likes sports
we can practice one together. In order to mantain a habitable place, I think it should like to clean
regularly and keep things in order.  


Thanks for the lesson.

Great site!!
