It was an amazing and fantastic meeting with your beautiful family and I wanna tell you something about your baby who had a bad cough I think he had some bronchitis with a sputum so I wish him to be recovered quickly and to be in a good health and your wife so nice person and you're a respectable man too really I loved you good luck for you
my favourite place would be a medium house, confortable as well, a house full of light for everywhere and I can feel the winter sunny days...where I can see the rain falling down as well and we have animals cats and dogs or another pet and a woods around us..

I enjoy learning English with your videos every week. Congratulation, you have a beautiful and intelligent, wife. You are a wonderful couple.
My dream house would be a confortable house with all basic services next to the beach sorrounded by trees and tropical fruits even where we would have few wonderful neighbors to enjoy with. Thanks for improving my English skills. Bye for now.
To Fluency Hello How are you? Thank you. I am from Spain. I live in Barcelona. Nice to meet you. I've just watched your video about traveling. I prefere to travel ligh, and if I have to choose, here and now I would go to Japan.
hi Jack! I always watch your lessons..I really appreciate them ! I have a question about this topic: "real state " is the same as "real property " or just "property"? are they just different terms for British and American English?
Nice Video. I hope you can share with us more video about daily conversations. Example, breakfast before leave to work, at lunch or dinner more typical conversation in the house family. Excellent work keep on. Thanks.
Really enjoyed your lessons Jack. My dream house would be similar with Kate's dream house. But I like it located in somewhere in the middle of both of city and country so I could get benefits from that 2 area.
Thanks for your videos. My dream house would be in the forest, an small wooden tree house 10 meters up from the ground. It would be surrounded by hundred of trees, plants and exuberant vegetation. Going up into the house would be through spiral stairs. The most amazing part of living here would be in bad weather.... My house moving by strong winds ;)
hello Jack and kate, my dream house is for me, my dream home. That is to say, that the first thing that matters to me is that, i imagine this very concept of dream house only with my wife and my 2 kids, because if i was single(e.g), i definitely think that i wouldn't care about it. having said that, and since i'm married and have 2 children, i do have a dream house. it would be a big detached house, with 4/5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a big living room, a big modern kitchen with central island. it'd also need a vast garden at the back of the house with a beautiful deck or patio, and also a vast private area in front of the house where you could easily park or play basketball or table tennis. I want my dream house to be big because i'd love to have family or friends visit us.(i'd love it to be abroad actually)
that's it for me, hope this message wasn't too long. See you on wednesday Jack!(for your next live lesson)
I would love to live in a wooden cottage with breathtaking views of the countryside. No more than three bedrooms and a spacious living room. What would make it ideal for me is its being healthy and energetic. I wold like it to be cozy and filled with the sunlight. I would like to grow my vegetables and fruit in the garden of the house. I am kind of obsessed with leading a healthy lifestyle.
My dream house would be that it has a beautiful garden with trees, flowers and green grass. There is plenty of space for kids to play around . It is located in natural surroundings, far from the city. It is safe and quiet. Every person can have his or her own room . During the night the whole family can get together in a large living room to watch TV . A kitchen on the roof to enjoy cooking as well as dining with a great view . Above all, it is clean and tidy all the time .
well , i don't really thought about this :) i think living in the apartment would be relatively easy compare to a house. My priorities are it should be enough spacious and comfortable and at the same time that would be great if it was near tube or bus station :) in general I'm much more of a car guy i never dreamt something like Villa or mansion bcoz in my opinion it is too much :)
