I prefer to share a house to minimize the payment. But if I can afford it, I prefer to live alone.

Sharing room is the best way of saving money but you'll be more uncomfortable , not free enough than we live alone. It depend on your opinion what you want , money or free.

Hello, I completed all task, overall I have one mistake. I really struggle on improving my grammar, writing, and spelling as well. I'm not sure if I should write my discussion here but I find it helpful. if not tell me not to do it again :). Do you prefer to share a house or live alone? I prefer to live alone, but if I have to share I like to have an ensuite room. And shared kitchen and living room with a tidy person will be ok.

Sharing a house isn't very much common in my country. I prefer to share a house. Living alone is good but sometimes you feel it very boring. When you have different people, you can talk and share ideas.

Which sentence is correct; Five-minute walk from city centre or Five minutes walk from city centre

Hello elobied

The first one is better, though I would say 'a five-minute walk'. But anyone would understand the second one as well.

All the best
