Some people live in apartments. Most families live in houses. Most university students or people who don´t have children live in apartments. Most of the time, our apartments have bigger rooms than in the apartments in Spain.
We have lots of books at my house which we use for school. My siblings and I didn’t go to elementary school or high school. My mom taught us at home. In Spain, you go to jail if you don’t send your children to school. In the USA you have a choice. You can go to a public school, a private school or be homeschooled. I was homeschooled until I went to a university.
We have a dining room but most of the time we eat in the family room. We eat in the dining room when friends visit us.
Do you eat in your dining room or your kitchen?
This is the family room. Behind that door is our utility room.
Lots of houses in Florida have a special room for doing laundry. We call it a utility room. Most Americans wash their clothes in a washing machine and then dry them in a dryer. It is unusual for someone in the USA to not use a dryer.
We have trash cans next to our house and once a week a garbage truck comes buy and picks up the trash. This can be a problem because raccoons try to eat the trash and make a mess.
My grandparents have a very funny house. It has three floors and the first floor is a huge garage. My grandpa is a mechanic and likes to fix cars. This house is very unusual in the USA and my grandpa told someone how he wanted it built.
