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.

Tips

  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!

Hi!
I would like a single room with shared kitchen and bathroom. I'm a non-smoker. I'm a vegetarian, but I don't mind sharing facilities with non-vegetarian people. I sleep early and wake up early. It would be better if I have a room that is quite.

Hello. which sentence is correct and why : The wood is suitable for building a house; The wood is suitable for build a house; The wood is suitable to build a house;

Hello elobied,

From those options, suitable for building... is correct.

We can follow suitable for with a gerund or a noun, so we can say suitable for building... or suitable for a house.
