Exercise 2
Unity: All the sentences refer to the main idea
Coherence: The sentences should be organized in a logical way and should follow a definite plan of development.
I live in a house in Izmit. It isn’t old or modern. It’s a normal Turkish house. We can say it is near to the sea. It takes about 10 minutes to go to the sea side on foot. We have one bedroom, one living room. We also have two rooms, too. We use them as a dining room. Naturally, we have a kitchen, a bathroom, and a toilet. I live with my parents. And our house has a little garden; my parents spend their time to grow vegetables and fruit.
Thank you for your attention
Exercise 1
I live in a flat with my family. We have two bedrooms and a living room. We have a garden and we have some flowers there. In weekdays I arrive home at five o’clock and I have lunch. Then I do my homework and I go to bed. I had a computer but now it doesn’t work. I have a brother and a sister and I think I am very lucky to live with them. Sometimes our relatives visit us. Our flat becomes very crowded sometimes but I like it.
