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.

I prefer to share a house. Sharing a house gives opportunities to communicates with other people, thus that makes my life more fun. Also, it is the way to save money, since i do not need to pay for a whole house renting.

It is so amazing and useful site to learn English, will keep in the future in order to learn the English correctly and to use it in the best way.

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
