ESL Writing Activity: Ad Looking for the “Perfect” Roommate

Pretend that you are looking for someone to share an apartment or house with.

Describe the ideal type of person that you would like to live with. Don’t forget to write things that you do not want your ideal roommate to do.

Remember the more detailed you are the better match you will find! 🙂 Try to write 7-10 sentences about your “perfect” roommate. 

Example Ads:
1.) I am looking for a housemate. The ideal person would be a female, non-smoker, serious, no children or pets, quiet and should be a clean person (not messy).

2.) I am looking for someone to share my apartment with. Male or female. Someone that doesn’t mind listening to music and playing video games. I have a cat, so you need to be ok with cats. Someone that is young and likes to have fun and doesn’t get scared when I practice my electric guitar.

Challenge: Write how much is rent, where the apartment house is located and how to contact you.
