Note: Because the man mentioned whether a washing machine is provided so that we can be mistaken. But the woman indicates that there is no washing machine in the apartment so the answer is only washbasin.
Note: Notice that there is “s” after the “meal” word.
AGENT: Good afternoon and welcome to Habitat Hunters. You must be Joseph.
RENTER: Yes, that’s right. You said on the phone that I could come by at 2:00. Sorry, I’m a little early.
AGENT: No problem at all. In Calgary’s market, you have to move fast if you want a good apartment!
RENTER: Actually, I’d settle for almost anything. I’ve been here ten days and the hotel is ruining me. My father has me on a strict budget.
AGENT Sit right down here now, sir. Let’s talk a little about the places before we go have a look. Now, we have four apartments available.
RENTER: OK, could you tell me more about those four apartments?
AGENT: Sure. The first one is on Beatle Road, just a block off campus. It’s a 3-bedroom with a bathroom and a living room and a great Italian restaurant right next to it.
RENTER: How much?
AGENT: Well, it’s $435 a month, including Internet and utilities.
RENTER: Okay, that sounds reasonable. Any drawbacks to the house?
AGENT: There’s a really big garden, but it hasn’t been taken care of over the years and is just too big to clean up nicely.
RENTER: Hmm. That sounds okay. Tell me about the next option.
AGENT: The other 3-bedroom apartment is on Oakington Avenue on campus. It is right near the building where you have classes, and the kitchen and living room are newly furnished.
RENTER: Wow, that sounds like a pretty good option.
AGENT: Well, it is a cool apartment, but since it’s a dormitory, the living room, bathroom, kitchen, and washing machine are all shared. It would be nice not to have to buy living room furniture, though.
RENTER: And how much is this one?
AGENT: $400 per month for a bedroom with an air conditioner. For a bedroom without an air conditioner, you would pay less, $340 for it.
RENTER: Yikes, even with the air conditioner, it sounds really inconvenient to have to share facilities. I’ll never cook if I have to walk down the hall to use the kitchen.
AGENT: Yeah, that’s true. Anyway, the next place is a 2-bedroom on Mead Street.
RENTER: Oh, I like Mead Street - that’s off campus, right?
AGENT: Yep. It’s pretty cool, but it only has 2 bedrooms, plus a living room and a study.
RENTER: But I want to live together with my two friends.
AGENT: So you could make the study into a small bedroom if you end up living with them.
RENTER: Also, we guys want a TV and DVD player since we’re all so much into movies.
AGENT: Well, this place has a great TV and VCR, but no DVD player.
RENTER: No DVD? That’s so weird. Are any other facilities provided?
AGENT: As you said, weird enough, it also comes with a washbasin.
RENTER: Is there a washing machine? I think we need that more than just a washbasin.
AGENT: I'm afraid there’s no washing machine in the apartment.
RENTER: Wow, that’s so old-fashioned! Maybe it’s not the best choice for three college guys. How much is it?
AGENT: Well, it’s $600 per month, but of course it would be cheaper if you made it into 3 bedrooms instead of 2. Where is this apartment located?
AGENT: It’s 2500 Mead Street, where there are a lot of bars.
RENTER: It would be affordable, but it would get pretty noisy. And that sounds really expensive for an old place in a noisy area. How about the last place?
AGENT: This one’s on-campus in the Devon Close complex. It’s a one-bedroom, so it will be a little quieter than the Mead Street place.
RENTER: One bedroom, huh? That could be good for focusing on my studies. What else does it have?
AGENT: It comes with a living room and a study, and includes a really nice lamp in the study that has a bunch of different settings. You know what else is cool? There’s a dining hall downstairs so all evening meals are free. You can purchase breakfast and lunch, but meals after 6 p.m. are free.
Wow, this place sounds too good to be true. Is it really expensive?
AGENT: It’s alright - $500 per month, but there’s no bathroom.
RENTER: What? No bathroom?
AGENT: Well, there’s no bathroom in the apartment, but there’s one at the end of the hall.
RENTER: Hmm. Thanks, I think now I just have to decide whether I want to live alone or not.
AGENT: Yeah, which one do you prefer?
RENTER: I think I’d choose either this apartment or the one on Beatle Road.
AGENT: OK. You’d better think about it, and then you can contact me ASAP.
RENTER: Fine, thanks for your help!
AGENT: You’re welcome...
