Looking for a place to live? Find out your options in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:25 Explanations: 3:37 Fast dialog: 16:16 Lily: Thanks for coming with me to meet the rental agent to view an apartment, but I think I’m lost. I’m supposed to be there in 10 minutes, but I can’t find it. There are four different apartment complexes located next to each other and they look identical. Omid: Don’t you have the address? Lily: Yes, but all of the complexes in this subdivision look the same, and I don’t see a street number on any of them. Omid: Are you sure we’re looking for a block of apartments? Maybe the apartment is in a mixed-use building, like that one over there. Lily: I’m pretty sure. At least I know it’s in a high-rise building and the apartment is on the eighth floor. That mixed-use building is only three stories high. Omid: Oh, then it’s not a duplex or triplex, like those over there. Lily: No, it’s definitely not one of those. I’d better call the rental agent and get directions. Omid: Hey, look over there. I see a couple of the residents of that building walking out. Let’s ask them. Excuse me. Excuse me! Oh, they didn’t hear me. Lily: I’ll just make the call. Omid: Well, you can be sure of one thing if you move into one of these complexes. Lily: What? Omid: The bill collectors will never be able to find you! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
