    Apartment: Renting a Place of Your Own

Part II: Discussion

What is the process of finding an apartment in your hometown? Can you contact the landlord directly, or do you have to go through a real estate agent? On average, how much does it cost to rent a 1-bedroom apartment? Are most apartments already furnished, or do you have to furnish it yourself?  

Part III: Role Play

You have lived with your roommates for six months, but you've decided to move out because they haven't taken care of the place . . . pizza boxes tossed everywhere, dirty socks on the kitchen table, and a pet snake loose somewhere in the sofa. Tell your partner about your current situation, and then explain what kind of place you are looking for.

Part IV: Online Investigation

Suppose you are planning on moving to a major city in the United States, and you have to find a 2-bedroom apartment for you and your small family (your spouse and two small children, ages 7 and 4). You have a limited budget of under $800 a month for both rent and all utilities. Search the Internet for an apartment in the city of your choosing and report on the place you find. Be sure to prioritize your reasons for choosing the place.
