Hi there,

I live in my apartment in a small town in the north-west of Iran. My home is on the second floor and on this floor I have only one neighbour. It has two small bedrooms and a big living room. My apartment isn't very old and it doesn't have any repairing problems.

In my country, it is too expensive to buy or rent a house. It depends on your budget. If you can pay more, you can find a nice place.

Hello again!
Very similar question about "move out". Which is correct:
- "..move out the old flat"
- "..move out of the old flat"
or even
- "..move out from the old flat"

Hello Yshc,

You can say either move out of or move out from here. The first is more common and there is no difference in meaning.

Hello Team!
I'm not sure whether I must use any preposition after 'move in' when I want to point out the place (e.g, "a new flat").
In other words, is this sentence corect: "I'm going to move in a new flat"?
Or maybe I have to use some preposition after "move in" - e.g., "I'm going to move in to a new flat"?

Hi Yshc,

The preposition 'to' is used after 'move in' -- your last sentence is the correct one. Good work!

All the best,

Hello Team.
"Ashlie is not happy with her flat. So Stephen offers to help her find somewhere better. That sounds easy, doesn't it?"
I have a big concern to the question tag above " That sounds easy, doesn't it?".
Shouldn't it say : "That sound is easy, isn't it?". Or do they have different meaning?
Would you like to explain, please?
Thank you very much.

Hello Nizam,

'sound' is a verb in the sentence you ask about -- see the dictionary entry for more.

Good afternoon, dear Teachers!
Could you, please, to explain me what does it mean "fed"?
If i understood right it's a second form of verb "feed".
But how i may translate this sentence : "I'm fed up with living here".
Thank you!
Best regards, Anastasia.

Hello Anastasia,

The verb here is a phrasal verb: 'fed up'.

You can find the meaning and examples in any online dictionary, such as this one.
