I live in a city in the centre of Italy, placed sea-level. It's a commercial city, with many shops and stores. During the summer it's a favourite place for tourists, who arrive from northern Europe.
Finding a nice house or flat where I live should be easy or not; it especially depends on resources.

Excuse me ,didn't understand the meaning of flathunting .Also the meaning of pink ,did she mean the color "pink"?

Hello Gege,

'Flathunting' is the process of finding a new flat.

When Ashlie talks about 'pink' she is referring to the colour, yes. She obviously is not a fan of this colour!

I think the following sentence should use "are" instead of "is":
"There’s trains every ten minutes into Central London".

Hello vietdung568,

You're right, strictly speaking, it should be 'There are trains ...' In informal speaking, however, people often use the singular form. I wouldn't recommend you speak this way, but it's great that you noticed this.

All the best,

The place where I would like to live should be light, spacious, in trees and flowers and it shouldn't be only the place where you have been living, it should your home :)

I like beinng social so I would like to live at city center o somewhere like that

Yes,I can
If you make a list what do you want from a house, you can find a nice house

ı must to live relax flat it must to be light and quiet place

I think finding a good flat is very hard. Because sometimes it is too expensive or is too small or too noisy.
