ESL Conversation Questions: Where do you live? Are you married? Have you got (any) children?

Transcript:

I just made it on time, I had to wait twenty minutes for a train.

Do you have far to come?

I live in Harrow, so it’s about forty minutes on the underground.

That’s zone five isn’t it? It must cost you a lot in travelling.

Sure does, but with a travel card, I can use it evenings and weekends as well.

That’s what I do. Pity the company won’t pay our travelling.

What about you? Where do you live?

I live in Hampstead.

Nice! You must be on a good salary!

You’re joking! I rent a tiny apartment with three other girls!

So you’re not married then? Got a boyfriend?

No. I’m happy to be single at the moment. I’m having too much fun to be bothered about boys. What about you?

Yeah, I’ve got a girlfriend. We’ve been together since university.

Any kids?

Oh no. Too young for that. Maybe in a few years when we can afford a decent place to live.

London’s so expensive, isn’t it?

You can say that again.
