Arbeitsbuch  ---  An old neighbor

Frau Frisch meets and old neighbor, Herrn Übele, in a shop in the center of Zürich.

 

Frau Frisch

Herr Übele, haven’t seen you for a long time!  How are you?

Herr Übele

Ah, I’m becoming almost crazy.  We have bought a new house, and there is always a new problem.

Frau Frisch

A new house?  Where, then?

Herr Übele

In Eichendorfstraße.

Frau Frisch

Ah ha, my sister lives there.  Beautiful area.

Herr Übele

Right, and even so, central.  It’s only five minutes into the city.

Frau Frisch

How large is it then?

Herr Übele

It’s bigger than the old one.  On the ground floor we havea large livingroom, a dining room, a bathroom, a kitchen, and a work room. On the first floor are three kids’ bedrooms, our bedroom and two bathrooms. 

Frau Frisch

You do have a lot of room there.  Is it a new construction?

Herr Übele

No, it’s about twenty years old.  Do come by soon!

Frau Frisch

Gladly, Herr Übele

Herr Übele

Well, I still have a lot to do and must be home soon.  Say hi to your family. 

Frau Frisch

Thanks. You too.   And lots of luck with the new house.
