My sister left her Institute two years ago and went to work in Norilsk. She's an engineer and works at a factory. She got a very comfortable flat last month in a new block of flats. It's on the third floor. I got a letter from my sister on the fifth of March with several pictures of the city and her flat.
This is a picture of my sister's flat. Look at it. There's a study and a bedroom in it, but there isn't a sitting-room or a dining-room. She has a living-room and she uses it as a sitting-room and a dining-room. There's also a kitchen and a bath-room in her flat, but you can't see them in this picture.
This is her living-room. The walls in this room are yellow. The ceiling's white and the floor's brown. You can see a square table in the middle of the room. There's a vase of flowers on it. There's an arm-chair and a standard-lamp [´stændəd…] — ‘торшер’ in the corner. There's also a piano in the room. My sister plays the piano very well. She loves music.
To the right of the piano you can see a door. It's open.
- Can you see a writing-table? - Yes, I can.
- Are there any books on it? - Yes, there are some.
- What else is there on the writing-table? - There's a telephone and a radio set on it.
- Is the television set on the table too? - No, I can't see it.
- Is there a sofa in this room? - No, there isn't a sofa, but there's a bookcase in the corner.
- Which room's this? - It's the study.
To the left of the piano you can also see a door. It's open, too.
- Are there many things in that room? - No, there aren't.
- Which room's that? - It's the bedroom.
- Is my sister's flat comfortable?- How many rooms are there in her flat?
